Cool old growth forest. Lots of creek and stream crossings to keep you on your toes. Some large downfall from winter storms, big trees to navigate. There is always an easy rout around. Plenty of waterfalls along the way, leading up to an uneventful ending.
This was kind of an unremarkable hike, but it does have easy access in off-season months.Unfortunately, the creek stays out of sight for most of the trail, but there was one spot where it got close & had a camp-site, & another at the end of the trail where it intersects with Lion/Foster lakes Trail or continues across the creek to go to Boulder Lakes.
