Tired Creek Trail begins at Pete Lake Trail #1323 and ends at Polallie Ridge Trail #1309. This trail accesses the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
Tired Creek Trail gradually ascends through a 1987 partial cut logging unit, then onto a road for 100 yards (to the right towards the creek). From the road, the trail climbs steeply along the edge of a 1960s plantation near Tired Creek and enters timber, climbing steeply with numerous switchbacks, into the upper basin of Tired Creek and ends at Polallie Ridge Trail 1309 . Except for the steepness and a few rock ledges, this trail is fairly good. There is water in the upper basin. The upper 1.5 mile of this trail is in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Areas above 5000 feet are closed to fires.
SETTING: Partial-cut logging, old-growth trees, grassy meadows, open hillsides, ridgetop, valley bottom, subalpine area.
