Trout Creek Trail #3405

This enjoyable trail with a gradual incline takes you through a 100-year-old fire generated forest on a south facing slope.  The rocky top of Rooster Rock comes into view as you ascend.

One half mile from the top, the trail joins Rooster Rock Trail, and continues to the base of Rooster Rock. The south aspect makes this trail a pleasant hike in the winter and spring.
