Part 2 of my series of my favorite hikes. This one is to little used West Clear Creek!
Some places are just too beautiful not to see in person.
“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.” –Henry David Thoreau
Horton Creek Trail is a fairly easy 3.5 mile out and back hike. It has a slight uphill grade, a pretty little creek and lots of shade along the way. The creek is fairly shallow with small pools and lots of pretty little waterfalls, and culminates at Horton Spring which bubbles cool clear water from the hillside. You’ll see wild strawberries, blackberries and grapes growing along the creek, but watch out for poison ivy.
