Currant Creek Nature Trail
Length: 1.2 miles round trip
Difficulty: Easy

Description: This short, easy trail runs from the campground at Currant Creek Reservoir up onto a ridge where you get outstanding views of the reservoir and surrounding area. Signs along the trail identify plants and explain the natural habitat.

This is a loop trail and the loop portion is about 1 mile long. Hike the entire loop or just go out as far as you want and then return the way you came.

The trailhead is located in loop D of the campground, which is on the west side of Currant Creek Reservoir. To reach the trail drive Hwy 40 SE from Heber to the Currant Creek turnoff. The Currant Creek Road is gravel. Follow it for 17 miles to and then around the reservoir to the campground. Parking and restrooms are available at the trailhead.

From the trailhead, follow the obvious, signed trail south into the canyon. The area is forested and offers an abundance of plant and animal life. The trail then climbs to the top of a ridge south of the campground, follows the ridgeline and then drops back to the campground. From the ridgeline you have views in ever direction. To the north you can see the reservoir. To the east are red sandstone cliffs. Forested mountain ring the area.
