West Clear Creek Trail Hike

Summary:  An interesting hike that takes you to a nice creek

Challenge Level:  Easy

Hiking Distance:  About 1 1/2 miles each way

Trailhead Directions:  From the "Y" (the intersection of State Route 89A and State Route 179), drive south on SR 179 for 14 1/2 miles to Interstate 17. Continue under the Interstate and proceed on Forest Road 618 for 11 3/4 miles to a road on your left. Turn left on this road. Drive about 3 1/3 miles to where the road ends. The trail is beyond the fence.

Description:  It's a long drive to the West Clear Creek Trail #17:  about 30 miles one-way from the "Y", with the last 13 miles on well-graded dirt roads.  The trail is scenic and an easy hike, much of it along the creek and past the ruins of an old ranch.
