    Default Colorado creek, Kenai Peninsula

    Hey, just wondering if anyone has hiked up Colorado Creek? ( it's near summit lake on the Kenai Peninsula) It looks. like there is a mining trail that goes for a mile or 2 up the valley. Just wondering how much bush whacking you have to do till u get above tree line? Any information would be great. Thanks in advance.

    There is a trail, it is muddy in spots, there are two trees across the trail down low. No bush whacking, but a lot of tall grass. Lovely valley. It is much easier to go up Summit Creek Trail, side'hill a short distance in East Creek, and jump into Colorado Creek. About (2) two hours to the back of Colorado Creek via the Summit Creek route.

    Thanks for that info AGL4now. I think I am going to go up summit creek then down Colorado creek all the way to the highway. This of Course could change if I find another high altitude valley that looks better.
