Description

Starting near the patrol cabin off of Glade Creek Trail, Webb Canyon quickly fords Berry Creek (sorry, no bridge here) and heads west, in classic, glacially scoured fashion. The trail follows Moose Creek heading west and after a few miles, is flanked by Owl Peak (10,593') and Elk Mountain (10,720') to the north, and Ranger Peak (11,332') to the south.

The trail stays close to the creek most of the way, and Moose Creek is quite impressive as it plummets out of this alpine territory. The creek's constant rock smashing and mud scouring provides an audible backdrop for your jaw-dropping surroundings. This might even make you forget you're ascending such a large mountain!

After some tree-ensconced easy climbing, the canyon pops out of the trees, turns north, and switchbacks very steeply to a gully - this area is called Moose Basin. You can camp anywhere in Moose Basin, and no matter where you decide to rest your head, it will undoubtedly be a memorable experience.

After working your way through Moose Basin, gain the aforementioned gully as the trail continues westward, switchbacking once more to the top of Moose Basin Divide. Along the way you'll be navigating from cairn to cairn, and passing awesome wildflower carpeting for the duration.
