Trails in the Spotlight

Angel Creek Hillside and Winter Trails

Angel Creek Hillside Trail

The Angel Creek Hillside Trail provides year-round access to The Angel Creek Cabins (except during spring break-up). The trail stays high, contouring the hillside, offering many scenic views of the valley and surrounding hills. Maximum grades are 10% with an average grade of 8%. Connect the Angel Creek Hillside Trail and the Angel Creek Winter Trail during winter months for groomed loop trips of 8.5 and 15.5 miles.

The Angel Creek Winter trail provides a more direct lowlands winter access to the Angel Creek Cabins. The trail generally follows the valley bottom with little elevation gain. This trail is closed to motorized use during summer.
