Gate Creek Trail #3412

  

Ancient old growth forests, younger true fir forests, and sweeping alpine meadows on the ramparts of Browder Ridge delight your senses as you travel this trail to access Browder Ridge.

A little less strenuous than the western access, the gradual climb along shady, forested switchbacks puts you on a plateau with views of Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington, and Three Sisters.

Adventurous types can follow an unmarked side trail to a ridge overlooking pristine Heart Lake (This unmaintained trail ends on a ridge above the lake. Anglers will need to find their own way down to the lake.)
