Hiking Big Creek Trail

Wander past streams, a deep canyon and old-growth trees on the Big Creek Trail. Located in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, this narrow, rocky trail provides a challenge for adventurous hikers.

There are a few creek crossings, so be sure to bring water-proof shoes. Swift and high water early in the season can make the crossings more difficult.
