Family Friendly This trail isn't too steep and has good sight distance. It is also close to downtown Government Camp to bail or treat them to a huckleberry milkshake at the end of the hike.

The trail is a nordic ski/snowshoe trail in winter when there is snow. There are mountain bikes on the Camp Creek Trail that should yield to hikers, but be careful.

Description

Camp Creek Trail is a loop off of Crosstown Trail and provides a 1.6 mile additional loop to your hike. There are mountain bikes on this trail, but the tread is 24-30" and the tree clearing is 20 feet for winter grooming, so it makes for good visibility and lots of huckleberry and wildflowers along the trail. There are small rocks in the tread and some larger rocks along the side. There is one large bridged creek crossing along the trail that is designed for a groomer.

There are seven trailhead parking areas around Government Camp. The closest trailhead parking to Camp Creek Loop is at the Summit Sno-park on the northeast end of Government Camp.

Camp Creek and Crosstown are part of the larger Government Camp Trail System. Most of the Government Camp Trail System is designed for beginner and intermediate hikers and is friendly to children and seniors. The trails system stretches from Timberline Lodge above to Trillium Lake below, giving you lots of hiking options. You can make a large 4-mile loop around the town on both sides of Hwy 26 (cross at the blinking yellow lights with caution!). Most of the trail intersections are numbered and trailhead maps, trail brochures, and online trail maps will help map reading challenged folks to find their way around easily

Flora & Fauna

Camp Creek Trail has high elevation mountain hemlock, noble fir, Alaskan yellow cedar, with an understory of rhododendron, sword fern, Oregon grape, salal, bear grass, and plentiful huckleberries.
