Description

This trail begins at the Scout Mountain Campground, loop D. There is a large sign that marks the beginning of the path. If you see a sign for the East Fork Mink Creek Trail, then you have gone too far. The trail goes through a lovely forest full of Douglas Fir, Blue Spruce, and pine trees. The trail leads to a wonderful overlook, before looping back to the trailhead.

Flora & Fauna

Douglas Fir, blue spruce, limber pine, yarrow, snowberry, deer, elk
