Six-Mile Creek Trail

Six-Mile Creek Trail

The CL50 suggested route turns right, towards the lake, for 100 yards to the trail register and the intersection of the Olmstead Pond Loop (marked in yellow). Follow the loop around the pond and back to the Six-Mile Creek trail (see next section for details). Now turn right (south) and continue on the Six-Mile Creek trail (Note: one may bypass this loop trail by turning left at the junction of the South Bay and Six-Mile Creek trails, shaving 3.2 miles off the trip). The trail runs southwest for 4 miles, past the southern junction of the Olmstead Pond Loop, and then more or less along a ridge. At Cowhorn Pond, a yellow-marked spur trail turns left and leads to an excellent lean-to campsite. Once back on the blue-marked Six-Mile Creek Trail, continue straight past the pond and up the hill to the Cowhorn Junction Trail.
