Elbo Creek Trail #892.1 Map.


This moderate 2.2 mile forested trail ascends through to the top of a storm blow down with nice views. A great place to observe a variety of plant life in the late spring and summer.

At a Glance

Current Conditions: 12/10/2017: Visitor report that The Elbo Creek trail is in great condition. All blow down has been trimmed, and the trail is currently easy to follow. The road walk up to Buck Mountain was mostly clear of snow today. I walked back down Forest Road 2620-060, then 2620 all the way back to the trailhead. The road washout repair is excellent. There is a deep (6+ feet) sinkhole further up the road that will need repair, an unaware hiker or driver could get themselves trapped in it (it is flagged with a tree branch and surveyors tape).
