Big Creek Falls
The first 1.3 miles of this hike are along the Red Elephant Nature Trail, named after a prominent peak four miles south of Big Creek Lake in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area. Red Elephant Mountain is clearly visible from Upper Big Creek Lake at the end of the nature trail. A Forest Service pamphlet, available at the trailhead, describes the fauna and flora along the trail at 25 numbered stops.
