Big Creek Trails

  

Cabin in Big Creek area

This area is bounded by private lands on the west, Coeur d’Alene Divide on the north, Cemetery Ridge Road on the east and the St. Joe River on the south. It provides an example of multiple-use recreation. It is enjoyed by hikers, stock users, motorcyclists and ATV riders. Elevations range from 2400 feet to over 6000 feet with over six prominent peaks. The topography is steep and dissected. The area is one of the closest and earliest places to open up and lose its snow for people to recreate. Many people plan their Memorial Day weekends here. The 1910 Fire consumed nearly the entire area. The vegetation is a mosaic of extensive brush fields, remnant stands of older trees and 100-year-old lodgepole pine stands. The Big Creek area was railroad logged following the 1910 Fire but evidence of this is essentially unnoticeable. Developments include cabins, lookout remnants and signs of mining activity. Big game hunting is very popular here and Big Creek supports important fisheries.
