Warm Springs Creek Trail #103

  

The Warm Springs Creek trail is 8.7 miles long.  It begins at Road 5728 and ends at Trail #673 (Overwhich Falls). This is the main route into the Warmsprings area. The grade from the trailhead to Three Forks does not exceed 6% as it follows the streambed of Warmsprings Creek. From Three Forks to Overwhich Falls the trail follows a ridge and the grade varies from 8% to 25%.  This trail offers short day hikes to points along the trail or access into the heart of Warmsprings area for an extended backcountry trip.

The trail meanders through stands of large ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, and spruce. These large sized trees, together with the proximity of the creek, offer pleasant surroundings. Wildlife in the Warmsprings area includes elk, deer, moose, and mountain lion.  This area is popular during elk and deer hunting season.  Beaver can be found in the Three Forks area along with numerous other small wildlife species.  Range cattle may be found throughout portions of the area, as it is part of a grazing allotment.  

Warms Springs Creek offers fishing for Dolly Varden, cutthroat, brook and rainbow trout.  Capri Lake, on the Overwhich end of the trail, also supports a small population of trout.  

The trail is open for the following uses: Hiking, Horseback Riding
