Bishop Creek Trail & Picnic Area

Difficulty

Easy

There is parking at the trailhead for passenger vehicles and one or two campers. The trail is half a mile long and takes you through a mature birch forest that is carpeted with devil's club and watermelon berry plants. It's an easy walking, ideal for small children, and ends at a small camping area on a slight bluff that overlooks Bishop's Beach and Bishop Creek. There is a fire pit, picnic table, and room for a couple of tents. A short trail leads down to the beach where there's sand and plenty of room for bonfires. The creek is shallow and for several weeks in the middle of the summer it's possible to see red salmon heading upstream. The best time to watch for salmon is at low tide when water levels are low and the fish are half out of the water. It's also possible to climb the sandy bluffs nearby or walk in knee deep mud along the stream's edge. Don't venture far from the beach because the mud gets very deep and can be extremely dangerous.
