Read an Excerpt

Tea Creek Mountain Loop This loop tours the Tea Creek Backcountry, a highland area of meadows, brawling streams, spruce woods, and rocky mountaintops. Begin at an altitude of over 4,000 feet, traveling through open country to enter the high elevation Right Fork Tea Creek, where beaver dams and meadows contrast with the northern hardwood-spruce forest. Then follow old railroad grades descending to the North Face Trail where level walking leads to Tea Creek Mountain Trail. Ascend Tea Creek Mountain, entering pure spruce forests and a rocky plateau with great views before completing the loop. Be aware the trails here are wet, rocky and uneven in places, slowing your travel. Add an extra mile if you want to visit the confluence of Tea Creek and Right Fork, where swimming holes and sunning rocks lie near a trail shelter.
