From the trailhead at 4,600 feet, the Cherry Creek Trail begins a gradual, steady climb up the Cherry Creek drainage. The trail passes through the Cherry Creek Natural Research Area, which contains some outstanding examples of terrain carved by glacial action. There are two major creek crossings that may not be passable due to high water during early spring (May – June). About three miles from the trailhead, the trail begins a steep climd through shady mixed conifer forest before entering the Sky Lakes basin, just east of Trapper Lake. (The dense timber, shade, and water in the creek all combine to make this a favorite for mosquitos most of the summer.) The striking scenery along this trail is a sample of the fragile and primitive wilderness environment which requires the practice of minimum impact visitation to endure.
