This great outdoors trail has a total elevation difference of 1,401 feet which is about average. Maggie Creek Trail has only one trailhead, so in and out is the way to backcountry hike it normally.

Being 12.4 miles long; it's longer than many backpacking and hiking trails. This walk should take you about 2 days, so better have big a backpack to fit all the stuff you need. Now this great outdoors hiking trail is pretty long, so don't forget to pack enough supplies.
