Lynx Creek Trail #534
From the trailhead on Elk Mountain Road #285, the Lynx Creek trail begins to drop along a ridge to Lynx Meadows. Other than erosion in several places, this section of the trail is in good shape with little brush or windfall. This section of trail offers a spectacular view of Three Prong Mountain and The Drop Off. There is a campsite at Lynx Meadows, but it does not have suitable forage for stock. A small branch of Lynx Creek runs into the southern part of the meadows, with the main creek about one quarter mile to the south (steep grade). From Lynx Meadows, the trail continues downward for approximately three miles to its end at Forest Road #357. This is the best part of the trail, with little erosion and light windfall.
