Visitors be aware, in the mountains the water is cold all year. If you fall into the cold water it will affect you immediately.
Gardener Creek Trail runs through the valley bottom in montane to subalpine terrain paralleling Gardener Creek. The trail continues up between Syncline Mountain and St. Eloi Mountain. This intimate trail weaves in and out of the creek, but it is largely forested the entire way. As an old OHV trail, the gradient starts off easy and then gets progressively more steep as you approach the Continental Divide.
Not recommended during heavy run off.
