Update May 1, 2018: The upper portion of the Clear Creek Trail is currently under construction. This approximate 6.5 mile addition will connect directly to the Spooner Summit South parking lot at the restroom. The trail is currently built and open for about 3 miles as an up and back only. Located about 1.5 miles north of Knob Point, this new section continues uphill from the new Clear Creek Junction, located in the aspen grove at the creek crossing. From this junction, the trail heads uphill 1.5 miles to the Cliff Rock overlook, and then another 1.5 miles to a second overlook where the trail currently dead ends. During spring and summer, the trail will be built downward from Spooner Summit to eventually connect to the current dead end. It is estimated to be connected and completed early fall.

The Clear Creek Trail is a 10.5-mile trail starting at Jacks Valley Trailhead next to Jacks Valley Elementary School. This trail is a partnership that traverses through U.S. Forest Service land, private lands, Douglas County trail easements and a Nature Conservancy Conservation Easement.
