The Bybee Creek Trail follows Forest Road #6530 and is flat and straight for most of the northern section. The midsection of the trail follows the old Diamond Lake Highway, winding through a dense, old growth forest down into the beautiful gorge of Copeland Creek. The southern section passes through Douglas fir and white fir forests. Proceed with caution as you approach the Bybee Creek snowmobile bridge, which is at the bottom of a very steep hill. The remainder of the trail goes through lodgepole pines and large Douglas fir, white pine and hemlock. There is a beautiful view of Rabbit Ears from the southern section of the trail.

The trail connects with the Hamaker Loop Trail #1062 and the Whiskey Creek Trail #1063.
