  • Site Description:The Alki Creek trail is a good trail for those seeking solitude. Expect to encounter wildlife as the trail climbs steeply and steadily to the tarns at the base of Mt. Murphy. The historic Mystery Mine and Blue Peter Mine are passed along the way. At the peak of flower season, the subalpine meadows put on a spectacular show with a diversity of species. Although there is not a designated campsite along this trail, the meadows near the tarns are a good place to set up a low impact, wilderness camp. Experienced route finders can continue on to Murphy Pass over steep, broken terrain. They will be rewarded with great views of nearby Mount Murphy, Pyramid Mountain and Bootleg Mountain, and the more distant peaks of the Purcells. In winter, skiers should take care traversing the avalanche chutes which cross the trail.

  • Driving Directions:Main Access: Commencing in Cranbrook, at the junction of Hwy 3/95 and Hwy 95A, follow Hwy 95A for 23.4 km to the north end of Marysville. Take a sharp left (south) onto the St. Mary Lake Road. Set your odometer at �0�. Follow this road for 19 km, to just past the 29 km road marker. The Alki Creek Road is on your right, just before the bridge over Alki Creek. Turn right (north) onto this steep, narrow, rough, 4x4 road and follow it for 0.8 km to the trailhead and parking area. If you are in a 2 wheel drive vehicle, or would rather not be bounced around, park at the bottom of this road and begin your hike here.
