Hike the Clark Creek Primitive Trail

Clark Creek Primitive Trail

A hike to a number of creek cascades, with some summer splashing along the way.

Many small cascades can be found along this creek. On hot summer days, it's a great place to jump in and cool off.

Love this place

I love clarks creek! and so much nature to be admire The glacier deposits and waterfalls are a sight to see. TIP: I dont always stay on the trail. Sometimes i flow the creek to give my legs a rest.

Awesome day hike!!

Waterfalls and Hills!

If you go to Clark Creek Nature Area, be prepared for two things: 1. You will get wet! 2. Your legs will feel like jello after hiking up hills for a few hours. Its a bummer that you can't camp here, but it is a great place to spend the day.
