Trail Overview

This trail takes you from the Elk Creek Basin and up over Shattuck Butte down to Morris Creek. The route starts by climbing up West Fork. Lindley Creek Road and then over several logging roads - some of which are cut with sharp water bars - before descending down Morris Creek back to the Upper Basin Road where you can head back to Elk River. There are stretches of this route that can be very muddy after rain or in late spring/early summer from snow melt due to the sandy/silty soil. These are "full width" roads however it would not be advisable to take anything without higher clearance and 4x4 on this route.


This is a easy route, minor obstacles but some areas that should be done with higher clearance vehicles with 4x4
