Description

Pair the Camp Creek Trail with the Cherry Creek Trail to gain quick access to the high mountain Brother Lakes for an out-and-back. Continue upward and over the hydrologic divide to form a wonderful loop with the Spanish Creek Trail or make it even longer with the addition of exploration to the Jerome Rock Lakes.

The trail starts out mellow and passes through free-ranging herds of bison before turning South into the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. Gain elevation toward the Brother and Sister Lakes area and either reverse direction back out, make camp here or continue on deeper into the Wilderness.
