Briggs Creek Trail

Briggs Creek Trail features some meadows along the way in addition to some good swimming holes in Briggs Creek. At 4.3 miles is Courier Mine Historic Cabin Site set amid Horsetail. There is also a nice campsite with a fire ring at 4.9 miles. Hikers must forge Briggs Creek several times, making summer or early fall the best time to hike the trail.

The trail travels through some old harvest units and some old growth stands. Several smaller creeks, springs and some marshy areas must be crossed along the way as well. The area is rich with mining history as well as many claims that are being worked at the present time. This trail was named for George E. Briggs, a packer who supplied early miners in the area.
