For the first 2 miles Flower Creek Trail (137) is on a south slope above Flower Creek. Small flats offer good camping and their proximity to the trailhead makes them attractive for families with children. At about 3 miles, it takes off through a campsite on the left. At about 4.5 miles, Trail 317 forks to the right which leads toward the Cabinet Divide trail and Minor Lake. No motorized vehicles are permitted on this trail, and no vehicles are allowed within the wilderness boundary.
The Flower Creek trailhead also provides access to Indianhead Trail, Parmenter Creek 140 cutoff, and the Flower Lake trail.
The Flower Creek road is closed seasonally for wildlife habitat protection but is generally open from June through September.
