Quartz Creek Trail
The 16 mile developed trail climbs into alpine tundra and passes through white spruce forest valleys. The trail traverses a series of ridge lines with sweeping valley views to the end at Quartz Creek. The Quartz Creek Trail includes steep grades, rough terrain and several stream crossings.
