North Fork Lake Creek Trail

July 14, 2019 ~ The hike to the pass along the North Fork Lake Creek Trail is absolutely beautiful, the views along hike in a steep V-shaped valley are simply breathtaking. The trail starts at the curve along Highway 82 just before it turns sharply and up to the crazy twisty-turn road known as Independence Pass. Most of the trail is inside the Mount Massive Wilderness. From the trailhead to the Wilderness boundary, the trail is very gentle, and the views of the valley are incredible.
