Whittaker Creek Recreation Area

Description:

Whittaker Creek Campground offers family camping in a wooded riverside location with a hiking trail that provides access to an old growth stand of Douglas fir high above the campground. The Old Growth Ridge Trail was designated in 1994 as a National Recreation Trail due to the exceptional wildlife, geology and old growth trees that are typical of coast range ecosystems. Chinook and coho salmon, as well as steelhead trout, can be observed in the fall and winter months in the creek next to the campground.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
