Mosquito Creek (upper)

Walking Level: 
Moderate

Enjoy the meandering path that is spell binding in the spring when all the deciduous trees are sprouting and breathtaking in the fall when the leaves begin to change color. This is a salmon habitat so you might catch a glimpse of a fish in one of the many ponds along the trail.
