Noble Creek Trail #208

Noble Creek Trail leaves the old Jack Mountain lookout site and drops to a meadow and a tributary of Noble Creek. The trail follows this stream for one mile to the first of several crossings of the main fork of Noble Creek. Meadows and boggy spots continue as the trail follows the drainage in an easterly direction. The trail finally leaves the creek and comes out on top of a ridge and ends at its junction with Mallard Creek Road #421.
