- Prince Creek Trail begins on the up lake side of Prince Creek bar and leads from Prince Creek Campground on Lake Chelan to Horsehead Pass on the boundary of the Twisp and Chelan Ranger Districts. The first portion of the trail switchbacks through three and a half miles of ponderosa pine stands in the Lake Chelan- Sawtooth Wilderness before crossing Prince Creek Bridge. Watch for snakes along this stretch. The trail continues from this point along Prince Creek and the middle fork of Prince Creek until it arrives at the west end of Cub Lake. It then runs up the drainage that connects Boiling and Cub Lakes and switchbacks up to the ridge behind Boiling Lake to Horsehead Pass.
There are camping facilities located at the east end of Cub Lake and at Boiling Lake. Water is generally available along the trail but should be treated. Stock feed is available between Cub and Boiling Lakes. Motorized vehicles are allowed on the upper end of the trail (outside the wilderness area) from the east end of Cub Lake to Horsehead Pass. The stream crossing at mile 7 can be hazardous in the spring. This trail receives annual maintenance.
