The Service Creek Trail provides hiking and horse access, east-west through the middle of the Sarvice Creek Wilderness. It can be accessed from either the west or east end of the trail. Those hiking can expect to meet horses especially on heavy use weekends and during big game hunting season. The Sarvice Creek Trail can be used with the Silver Creek Trail as a loop system.
