Day Hiking

The first mile climbs gradually through the trees then it seems to level out for about three miles. Once you cross Vance Creek, it begins to climb slowly once again. The forest opens up to a meadow where 700 acres of forest burned in the 1962 Lincoln Lake Fire. Elk graze in this newly developed meadow. The last mile drops steeply and may be a little rocky.
Fire InformationUnless seasonal restrictions are in effect, campfires must be attended at all times and cold to the touch with the bare hand before being abandoned. Collection of dead and down wood is allowed; do not break branches from standing trees for firewood.
Difficulty Level: More Difficult
