Elk Creek Trail

Connects Rock of Ages to Woods Lake Trail

Turn south onto County Road 60M, Silver Pick Road, and continue south for approximately 3.7 miles past the National Forest boundary to the intersection with Forest Service Road #645, Elk Creek Road. County Road 60M turns into Forest Service Road #622 at the forest boundary. Follow FSR #645 for approximately 1.7 to the intersection with the Wilson Mesa Trail #421. Follow the Wilson Mesa Trail for 0.5 miles to the beginning of the Elk Creek Trail.
