Big Creek Trail (150) is primarily a creek bottom hike for 80 percent of the hike. Hiking is relatively easy until you leave the creek bottom and climb up to the trailhead on Road 7183. Fishing for small (4 to 8 inches) trout is available on the North Fork of Big Creek. A good campsite is available at the lower trailhead, but camping is limited along the trail. Hiking in and out along the creek bottom makes a good family hike.

Length: 4.5 miles. Moderate difficulty, light use

Trail Begins: Road 150.Trail Ends: Road 7183
