Tershishner Creek

Tershishner Creek is a short hike ideal on hot summer days or in winter, when it is frozen. The trail follows an old logging track which is now used mostly by ATV's and crosses the creek repeatedly. Wearing rigid sandals or sneakers which can get wet, saves having to take your hiking boots off repeatedly.

It is less than half an hour to the small set of falls, surrounded by lush vegetation, mossy forest floors and some remnant Douglas Fir which have survived both chainsaws and forest fires. In summer, the contrast of bright red Indian Paintbrush, silver Wolf Willow leaves and dark green foliage is striking.

The estuary of the creek, which flows into Abraham Lake just upstream of Bighorn Dam is a popular area for fishing.
