Description

Owl Peak Trail is almost a mirror image to Webb Canyon Trail. Drop sharply towards Owl Creek and onto a bench cut trail that contours past whitebark pine. Owl Creek Trail drops again after this bench and becomes an open valley that gently descends past some great campsites. Additionally, you'll cross two streams (Owl Creek and Berry Creek) without the aid of footbridges, so prepare to get your feet wet!

Once you reach the intersection with the Berry-Owl Cutoff, go right (east) and cross Berry Creek before it joins with Owl Creek. From here, the trail winds its way above the waterway and finally drops down to the intersection with Webb Canyon Trail.
