Trail shared by Jeff Ruhle

Beautiful single and doubletrack that winds through alpine valley meadows and streams.

Description

Starting off at the parking lot for the High Lonesome Hut, take off on the doubletrack towards the hut. The trail winds through several meadows, over bridges and through streams, all of which are beautiful. After about 2 miles, you'll get to a fork, the right going to the High Lonesome Hut and the left going to the trail you continue on. Be warned, this section can be very muddy, even if it has not rained for a while.

After another quarter to half a mile, the trail gets less muddy and turns to singletrack. Shortly after the singletrack starts, there is another form. From here, you can cross a narrow log bridge to the right (recommended) or keep going straight to cross the stream (usually very muddy). After that, you'll continue working you way down the drainage, past a usually abandoned hunting camp, and to the intersection of the Caribou Trail. Stay left here to keep on the Strawberry Creek West Trail where you'll immediately cross a stream and then run around the edge of the meadow with some fantastic views. The next intersection will be that with Doe Trail on the left. There is some singletrack that continues straight, which will take you to Strawberry Park, if you want to do a little extra exploring.
