Sucker Creek Trail #1256

Trail is maintained on a regular basis. This is a very scenic trail that winds through undisturbed stands of old-growth timber. The trail begins at spur road 260 and gradually descends to Sucker Creek. A number of small creeks and springs cross the trail, providing easy water opportunities. The trail crosses a large slide area, about which stories tell of a number of miners who perished years ago in its destructive path. The trail eventually reaches Sucker Creek, which has to be forded. Care should be taken when fording here – though it is relatively shallow in the summer, heavy rains may raise the level of the creek enough to make crossing hazardous. Once across, the trail follows Sucker Creek a short distance to an unimproved campsite near the Johnson Creek Bridge on Forest Road 5591.
