Description

The Chamberlain Creek Trail starts in the Chamberlain basin and continues to Germania Creek. Along the Chamberlain Creek Trail, watch for cairns as the trail can disappear in spots and becomes very steep at the top. Be sure to stop along the trail to enjoy the waterfalls and avalanche chutes. Some of the chutes have created deep gullies across the trail, they are constantly changing every year depending on the volume of runoff.

The steep and technical sections near the top should be used with care, they can have serious consequences if you lose your footing.

There are a few minor stream crossings along this trail. For the most part, the trail stays east of the creek during the entire descent.
