Likely In-Season!
Ingalls Creek Trail is 15.5 miles long, gains 4400 feet of elevation, and is used by hikers and stock users. The trail begins at Ingalls Creek Trailhead and climbs steadily through the forest alongside Ingalls Creek. Several trails have junctions with Ingalls Creek Trail as it heads east up the valley: Falls Creek Trail #1216, then Cascade Creek Trail #1217, followed by Hardscrabble Creek Trail #1219, Fourth Creek Trail #1218, Turnpike Creek Trail #1391, and Longs Pass Trail #1229. The trail between the trailhead and the junction with Longs Pass Trail #1229 gains elevation slowly, is mostly below tree-line, and is easy to follow, but after that junction it climbs more steeply, cuts across open, alpine meadows, and becomes brushier in places. This last section of the trail is 3.3 miles long and ends at Stuart Pass, where the trail turns into Jack Creek Trail #1558. There are many designated campsites for both hikers and stock along the length of the trail, and plenty of accessible water. The trail can be very brushy in sections. Additionally, there is no horse feed below Fourth Creek and limited feed above.

This is a difficult hike. It would be insane to attempt this entire hike without prior experience hiking.
