Dutch Flat Trail #1607

Trail Description

Between Van Patten Butte and Twin Mountain, Dutch Flat Trail follows the creek gradually ascending through a forest of spruce, larch, ponderosa and lodgepole pine to Dutch Flat Meadow. The long meadow offers secluded campsites along the edges. From here the trail climbs steadily to Dutch Flat lake. The trail continues and switchbacks across a rocky slope passing small subalpine meadows to reach the Elkhorn Crest Trail #1611 at Dutch Flat Saddle. Looking over the sheer east edge of the mountain crest Dutch Flat Lake can be seen on the basin below.
