Notes: Dry Creek is a popular trailhead with hikers and horse riders, located in the northeast corner of Alpine. It is one of the few trailheads left in Alpine that does not cross private land and is assured of never being cut off by development. The trailhead is at the end of the road that goes past the Alpine Rodeo Grounds.

Lake Hardy
 Elevation: 10300  Feature: Lake
Notes: This is a great destination. When I was there in 2007, someone had rubber boats stashed. I heard they stock the lake with fish. This would be a good base for climbing Bighorn, South Thunder or Chipman Peak.
