    Directions to Trailhead

    Leaving from the central Little Elbow area, Nihahi Creek is an excellent half-day trip that takes hikers up the creek and through the valley below Nihahi Ridge. If you aren’t up for the elevation gain that the ridge requires, this is the perfect trail for you.

    Route Description for Nihahi Creek Trail

    From the trailhead, there are multiple hikes that leave from the same area. Be sure not to mistake Nihahi Ridge for Nihahi Creek or else you’ll be in for a lot more than you signed up for. Find the Nihahi Creek trail signs and begin making your way up the valley following the creek. You’ll need to hike through the Little Elbow Campground along the Little Elbow Trail until you reach a junction at 5.0 km. Stay right and follow the creek here until you reach a wide section of water, which will be your turn-around point. You can explore as much of the creek and it’s valley as you like before turning back.
