The nearby Great Outdoors: Fishhook Creek

Steep canyon walls line much of the Fishhook Creek Road, most steep enough to keep human traffic to a minimum. From Fishhook Creek, miles of St. Joe National Forest are accessible, including alternate access to Kelly Creek.

One of the nearest mountain roads to the town of Avery, Fishhook Creek Road travels south into some of the most rugged country the St. Joe National Forest has to offer.

Among areas that can be reached from Fishhook Creek Road include Lick Creek, Outlaw Creek and Homestead Creek and the Little North Fork of the Clearwater River. Breezy Saddle (4,921 ft.) is also along the way just before dropping into the Grandmother Wilderness Study Area, which includes Fish Lake, Little Lost Lake and Crater Lake.

Where the Fishhook Creek Road splits into the 201 and 301 roads, a turn in either direction can lead into the Mallard Larkins, home to more than 11 high-mountain lakes that reportedly have good fishing.
