Description

From the Elkhart Park Trailhead, follow the Pole Creek Trail alongside Faler Creek headed east/southeast. Continuing gradually uphill through dense pine forest, the trail will bend toward the north. As the forest begins to thin out, look for exciting views of the Wind River Range to the north.

After passing Miller Lake, continue on toward Photographers Point. Here you'll find the first panoramic view of the range, and it's lakes and waterways below. This is a great spot for lunch. Pressing on, follow the posted signage for Pole Creek Trail as it continues east past the fork with Sweeny Creek and away from the Seneca Lake Trail.
