Deer Creek Summit South Loop Trail #43


This 3.1 mile route (on forest road 455 for 1.5 miles), leaves from the Deer Creek Summit South Trailhead / Sno-Park, and connects with Kettle Crest (North) National Recreation Trail #13. These two trails can be combined for a 6.5 mile loop back to the trailhead. This route can also be connected with the Long Alec Trail #43.1. There are nice views of the Kettle River Valley along this trail. This trail parallels the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. The trail is groomed cross country ski trail during the winter. This trail is fairly flat--part of it is on an old road.
