Abernethy Trail #3671


The 0.7 mile trail begins on the west side of Deer Creek, at the edge of the woods above a grove of alders. The trail stays above Deer Creek, continuing up the drainage through a high elevation forest that consists primarily of Pacific silver fir and mountain hemlock.

You'll find a small lake off to the left and will reach Abernethy Lake a short distance from the small lake.
