To access Tabor Creek Trail, follow the old jeep trail down to Lincoln Creek and cross the creek. There is no bridge and the creek can be high in spring and early summer. Look for fallen trees as an aid in crossing. After crossing the creek the trail climbs steeply and in 1/2 mile it crosses a wooden bridge over an aqueduct. The trail then becomes more moderate following the stream through the woods before it crosses and emerges into a vast open valley. The valley is often marshy. As the valley narrows the trail climbs through alpine tundra. Cairns mark the way in those areas where the trail is hard to follow. The last section is steep climbing to the pass through tundra and then rocks. The trail here is unmarked with little or no cairns.
