Brice Creek-Trestle Falls
November 28, 2003
Thanks to low snow levels, the planned loop hike on the Adams Mountain and
Crawfish trails was changed to the lower level Brice Creek Trail.
Nobody seemed to mind too much that they weren’t going to kill themselves
climbing the promised strenuous Adams Mountain.
Threatened high winds and torrential rains never materialized and we had great
weather for this beautiful hike.
We began at the West Trail head and hiked the 5½ miles to the trail’s
end at Champion Creek, stopping for lunch at the lower Trestle Falls.
A 2½ mile loop trail leads from the trail end, climbing up the Trestle Creek
The upper falls are spectacular—the water plummets over a sheer cliff, and
the trail leads behind the falls, so you can look through the veil of water down
This loop connects with the Brice Creek trail, and hikers then retraced their steps
back to the cars.
We enjoyed the company of three nonmembers and hope we’ll see them all again.
