Elk Creek Trail #3510


Beginning at Elk Creek Trailhead, Elk Creek Trail #3510 immediately heads up steep switchbacks around a ridge. The trail levels out at the top of the ridge, entering Three Sisters Wilderness and winding through open forested stands adjacent to meadows and swamps. The trail passes by several lakes before connecting with the Pacific Crest Trail #2000 to the east.
