“This trail offers low altitude access to Cook and Green Pass and the PCT.”— Bruce Hope
The upper end of this trail can be blocked by snow between November and early June.
Just past the camp, the trail makes a bridgeless crossing of Cook and Green Creek (be careful crossing here during high water), turns southwest, crosses Bear Gulch Creek (no bridge), then starts on a gradual climb up the west side of Bear Gulch. At 6.5 miles from the trailhead, the Cook and Green Creek Trail #959 crosses the head of Bear Gulch Creek (can be a slippery crossing at high water), then continues on for a short distance past a small spring to end at Cook and Green Pass and a junction with the PCT.
This trail can be combined with the PCT and the Horse Camp Trail #958 to form a 15-mile loop starting and ending at Forest Road 1040. This loop allows you to visit Echo Lake and enjoy big views to the south from the PCT.
