Bigfoot  Trail  Alliance

Hike to Packers Peak

The Bigfoot Trail High-Point

On Sunday, 5 volunteers met up in Coffee Creek, California to summit Packers Peak in the Trinity Alps Wilderness. This is the highest point along the Bigfoot Trail, at 7,822′. The peak offers some of the best views in the Klamath Mountains, amazing conifers, and other rare plants. This effort was spearheaded to collect data on the first photo-monitoring plot for the Citizen Science and Climate Change grant supported by the Rose Foundation.


The route climbs 2,800′ over 2.5 miles.

The hike is outstanding and quite strenuous as it climbs about 2,800′ in just over 2.5 miles. The trail is infrequently traveled, so it requires some route-finding in places. But I hope to get out and work on this section next summer.
