Jungle Creek Loop

Mountaineers CHS 1 hike along Jungle Creek, a moderate loop near Teanaway Butte with plenty of flowers in bloom this time of year. The first leg of the loop, the Jungle Creek trail no. 1383, is grossly unmaintained. We struggled through dense overgrowth along the creek bottom. Blowdowns were numerous along the entire route - we must have negotiated our way over more that 20 obstacles. We cleaned up and moved some of the smaller debris whenever we could. The flowers gave a magnificent show. The day was perfectly clear for grand views of the peaks of the county line and Stuart range.

Distance: 8.20 miles
Elevation gain: 2270 ft. gain
Time: 6 hrs 48 min.

The group was outstanding. If I could give credit for trail maintenance to each and every participant, I would.
