Tune in to TCT192 "the creek"
This trail climbs from Trapper Creek Trailhead on Forest Road 5401 through an old-growth forest, intersecting with Dry Creek Trail #194 almost immediately. The trail climbs for about 1 mile, before the junction with Observation Trail #132 near the Trapper Creek Wilderness boundary. The trail offers access to stands of old growth and rushing creeks. At 1.2 miles it becomes Trapper Creek Trail #192.2, which is Hiker Only.
This 4.8 mile trail is a continuation of Trapper Creek Trail #192.1 at 1.2 miles from the Trapper Creek Trailhead. After crossing a creek, it passes the junction with Soda Peaks Lake Trail #133. Trapper Creek Trail continues its climb through a second-growth forest and intersects with Big Slide Primitive Trail #195 and Deer Cutoff Primitive Trail #209 shortly beyond that. The trail continues, dropping down to Trapper Creek and then crosses Slump Creek. From there, the trail climbs up from the creeks, intersecting with the west junction of the Deer Cutoff Primitive Trail #209. A short distance beyond that, it passes the junction with Sunshine Primitive Trail #198. Still climbing, the trail reaches Cliff Creek viewpoint at 1,900' elevation. The trail keeps climbing and crosses Trapper Creek at 2,200' elevation. The steep climb after that crossing is rewarded by a view of Trapper Creek Falls. The trail crosses Trapper Creek again at 3,300 feet elevation, passes the junction with Rim Primitive Trail, and ends at the junction with Observation Trail #132 just outside the northern Wilderness boundary.
