Trail Overview

The area is made up of several smaller trails which traverse the scenic beauty of the Manti-LaSal National Forest. Clear Creek traverses North-South between Mayfield-Gunnison road and Olsen Canyon trail. Pine, Aspen, and Cedar trees cover the area along with many wildflowers, brush, and grasses. Wildlife can be viewed anywhere along this trail, especially during early mornings or later in the evening. Elk, Deer, Black Bear, wild turkey, and several other species inhabit the area.
