Special Directions

The main parking area is reached by following Highway 83 to the Echo Lake Road and further up to the Jewel Basin Road No. 5392. A separate western access is off the Foothills Road turning onto Krause Creek Road No. 5390, hiking on Strawberry Lake Trail #5, that takes you north of the Jewel Basin boundary. From the east on the west side of the Hungry Horse Reservoir there are three forest roads branching from the main road: * Clayton Creek Road No. 1633 * Graves Creek Road No. 897 * Wheeler Creek Road No. 895F
