Description

From the trailhead , this trail climbs steadily through pine forests until entering the mountain meadows below Gibson Peak.

Continue through the meadows until you reach Bee Tree Gap, where you'll see Siligo Meadows ahead. Descend from the gap and run a mile or so across the meadows to reach Deer Creek Pass. In front of you is the striking Siligo Peak above Deer Lake. The glacier-carved valley of Deer Creek extends to the north. You are at the boundary of the Red and White Trinities, and you can clearly see the difference between the red rocks around Deer Lake and the white rocks of Siligo Peak.

Run down from Deer Creek Pass to join the Four Lakes Trail.

Flora & Fauna

The pine forests in Long Canyon are thick with Douglas-fir, sugar pine, incense cedar, white fir. In the meadows look for wildflowers such as mariposa lilies, monkshood, Indian paintbrush, and western pasqueflower. And look for giant foxtail pines between Bee Tree Gap and Deer Creek Pass.
