Tea Creek


There are 5400 acres of backcountry with 45 miles of trails here. For its size, Tea Creek provides a lot of trails. Tea Creek is adjacent to Cranberry Wilderness, so linking up with the Cranberry area is possible. All of the trails create loops that are good for many different 2 to 3 day trips as well as good day hikes. Tea Creek BrochureTea Creek Map
