You will be hiking steep switchbacks, high tundra, and level terrain as you head down the Flint Creek Trail. The Flint Creek trail is 10.0 miles long. It begins at Forest Trail 523 - Pine River Trail. and ends at Forest Trail 655 - Rock Cr. Trail. The alpine meadows are full of blooming wildflowers in late July and in August. There are excellent views and photographic possibilities. Water can be found off the trail in most of the tributaries, but due to Giardia it should be filtered. As with all high-altitude areas, storms can move in rapidly, bringing severe wind, lightning, rain, snow, or hail—at any time of year. Plan accordingly.
