Difficulty
Moderate; somewhat steep. However, you will want to stop frequently to look down into the canyon at beautiful Victor Creek, so it is not too taxing.

Description

The trail follows the bluff along the steep canyon walls looking down into the powerful, milky-blueness of Victor Creek. You never see this one listed in the books, and there is very little parking, so it gets very little traffic. Even so, the trail is very well-maintained. Lots of blueberries in fall, flowers in summer.

I was very surprised on what a nice hike it was. For those who know this site, you know tree canopy hikes get low ratings But the trail does open up midway and the river really is very beautiful. I didn’t go to the very, very end but the glacier looks very easy to get to if so inclined.

Important Information

Not doable in winter due to high avalanche danger.

Black bear habitat.

There are some parts of the trail that skirt the edge of high cliffs which commands caution if bringing small children.

Etc.

Primrose Campground 2 miles down the road is one of the prettiest on the peninsula.
