  • Easy
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 6.3 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,350 ft

We will meet at the Big Creek trailhead at 0930 AM. 

We will go counterclockwise on the loop.  Additionally, we will take the connector trail to the viewpoint.  This adds approximately 500 additional feet in elevation gain and 2 miles overall to the traditional Big Creek Loop.  Bring a lunch so we can eat at the viewpoint.  I expect the hike to take no more than 5 hours.
