Big Jacks Creek

Big Jacks Creek flows through Big Jacks Creek Wilderness. Enveloped by sheer and terraced canyon walls, this perennial stream is surrounded by riparian vegetation. Redband trout are found in the creek, and bighorn sheep inhabit the canyon. There are few trails that access this area.
