Big Creek and Lake
This is an 18 mile out and back trail. The lake is a great place to relax and spend the night after a long day of hiking. If you are ambitious we can do this as a day hike. The trail is different than our other trails. It looks like you are in a rain forest for most of the hike. The hike its self is easy to moderate with the trail winding along the creek for most of the way.
