7 miles of hiking • 1750' elevation gain •

It was our anniversary and the spouse took the day off to go hiking with me! Quite a few cars at the Elk Meadows TH for a Monday, so we went a bit further and started off in the nordic ski lot and then turned uphill on the Newton Creek Trail where it was very quiet. Beautiful day on the mountain. We especially enjoyed the Heather Canyon area on Clark Creek.


nuizontann and Woodswalker heart this trip.

I like walking up Heather Canyon offtrail. There's a couple of really nice waterfalls up there. You have to really pick you way though. The sides of that canyon are steep and brushy in places

Yes that spot sure was inviting! We considered the scramble, but had a date later!
