Lake Creek Trail has a total elevation difference of 557 feet, and that is lower than average. The hiking trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time which means the conditions are about the same from start to finish. Being 4.4 miles long it's a mid length walk. The time needed for this hike is roughly 4 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. This is a one trailhead wilderness hiking trail, so you're looking at an in and out backcountry trek. This wilderness hiking trail is not that long but you should still bring some emergency supplies just in case something happens. At parts of the year this area sees very little rain, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out.
