Route Description for Grizzly Creek Trail

The short trail starts in the Grizzly Creek parking lot, which is, ironically, not along Grizzly Creek. There are great opportunities for bird watching, so be sure to bring your binoculars. The trail travels north from the parking lot for 600 m before meeting Grizzly Creek. Hike up the creek before reaching the turnaround point and heading back to the picnic area.
