The Cross Creek trail begins at Tigiwon Road #707 and ends at the junction of Missouri Lakes Trail #2003 and Fancy Creek Trail #2006a: The trail begins following a ridge and then drops down to Cross Creek. There is a bridge crossing at 1 mile in a meadow that is usually filled with wildflowers. This, or a view of Mount of the Holy Cross from a rock outcropping a bit further, make nice destinations for a short day hike. From here the trail continues through alternating conifer forest and open meadows before reaching Treasrure Vault Lake and the intersection with the Missouri Lakes Trail #2003 and Fancy Pass Trail #2006a at 15.3 miles in an open alpine meadow.
