    Default Falls Creek Trailhead

    Need some help locating the Falls Creek trailhead. The one on the Kenai, just north of ptarmigan creek trail, not the fall's creek on turnagain arm.

    I have hiked ptarmigan creek trail many times and I know there is a Y in the trail just before the lake that I think jumps over to the falls creek drainage.

    Any info on this area greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Tom

    Default Falls Creek, Kenai

    Is this what you want:

    Trail River National Forest Campground (Mile 24.2)—$6 campsites and access to the shores of Kenai Lake. East of the road, the Falls Creek Trail (3.2 miles, 1,000' gain) climbs into a steep valley past mining claims. It is officially 3.2 miles, but the valley continues to climb fairly gently at trail’s end and it’s tempting to keep going. About 9 miles in from the highway, it reaches a high saddle, 4,000-foot peaks, and glacier access. Conditions may be difficult. RT—half–all day (or more).
    Ptarmigan Creek Trailhead and Campground (Mile 23.1)—There’s a 16-site campground east of the road here. Sites are $6. The Ptarmigan Creek Trail (9 miles, 200' gain) reaches Ptarmigan Lake in 4 miles, then follows the narrow lake’s northern shore. RT—half–all day.
