14 miles of trails
|Washington Trails Main|
The Miller Creek / Iron Bear Creek Route is also commonly referred to as Stafford Creek due to the very popular Stafford Creek trailhead located nearby. The Miller to Bear Creek route is a moderately strenuous 13 mile loop that starts and ends at the trailhead and offers superlative views of the Cascade Mountain ranges, including views of Mount Rainer and Mount Adams in addition to the nearby Mount Stewart.
The trailhead has a vault toilet and 4 or 5 areas suitable for disbursed camping nearby. Miller and Bear Creeks provide easily accessed stock water. The camp sites have plenty of trees suitable for setting up high lines. Make sure to follow LNT guidelines while in camp and on the trail.
Navigating this route is easy as the trails are signed at every intersection. The Miller Creek trail has some steep areas with switchbacks that may be easier for stock to handle while going uphill. Once you reach the ridge lines you’ll have many areas where trees are scarce offering tremendous views.
NOTE: Forest Service Road 9703 is very rough, expect ruts, potholes, and to take at least 30 minutes to get to the trailhead, at the very end, from the turnoff.
A forest pass is required for this area. Certified weed free feed is required for stock use.
