“This busy trail follows the creek and offers exceptional fall foliage.”
— Tom Robson
Upper Thomas Creek and Upper Whites Creek trails are connected by the Dry Pond Trail
. Starting from the parking area, head south across NF-049 and turn right. From here, Upper Thomas Creek follows Thomas Creek and NF-049 all the way to an intersection with the Rim to Reno Trail.
Overall, this trail is an intermediate singletrack climb at a very steady gradient. If you like climbing, this trail is for you.
