The Park Creek Trail begins at South Fork Trail #1827 and ends at Nichols Creek Trail #1830. From the South Fork, the trail climbs quickly for .5 miles and emerges into the open meadows along Park Creek. It passes through a large, grassy park for 2 miles, then enters a series of smaller parks broken by short stretches of aspen. As the trail gains elevation, the aspen stands give way to Englemann spruce and alpine fir. The Park Creek Trail meets the Nichols Creek trail 6.4 miles from the South Fork Trail and 11.5 miles from the South Fork Campground.
