This place is so cool!! It was definitely worth the hike there. My father and I stayed in a bunk room on a cold January night with 10 other hikers and it was warm and clean!

Charit Creek is a beautiful place to visit. Nice and quiet, great getaway. However it advertises fresh food made daily. My first visit to Charit, we had canned chicken and dumplings for dinner along with canned vegtables. My trip last month, we had frozen Stouffer's lasagna and canned green beans. Meals are definitely not as advertised.

This is such a great place to ride and have lunch on the porch. It is also called the Hostile. There is a steep hill that you either come down or go up. I prefer to come down it....otherwise you have to stop and rest your horse a number of times. GREAT ride and one of my favorites.
