Avery Creek Trail Map

Avery Creek Trail (#146)


"The Beating Heart of Avery Creek"


A moderately trafficked path leading from Forest Service Road 477 up to Club Gap at the north end of the Black Mountain Trail (#127).  The portion between the trailhead and the Buckhorn Gap Trail (#103) is by far the busiest as it provides access to Avery Creek Falls and the nearby Twin Falls.  Coincides with Buckhorn Gap Trail briefly...this section can be wet.  Trail is obvious and/or well-marked its entire length.  Upper section is moderately steep and rocky in places.
