The Soldier Trail provides access into the bottom of East Clear Creek. Once in the bottom of the creek the trail turns west for about three-quarters of a mile before ascending the west canyon wall of the creek. The trail is very difficult to hike and may not be passable during high water. The section of the trail along the creek is not well marked.

The area is quite scenic and offers excellent photographic opportunities. In addition, sometimes outstanding trout fishing opportunities are available in East Clear Creek.

Elevation: 6,540 to 6,100

Access: Soldier trail is located at the end of fire road 319D. Access to the trail head is limited; as a result the trail receives limited use. Suggestions for maintenance of this trail are few, because of low visitation and a desire to maintain the trail in a semi-wilderness condition.
