Much of the hike is spent in thick woods or very tall huckleberry bushes (bring that bear spray!), but every once in a while you breakout into spectacular views. Lake Francis is beyond jaw dropping. Bring a fishing pole, you have to try to not catch a fish there. Great campground too. Would recommend it as an overnight trip. One of the best I've ever done!

Very beautiful trail with a perfect lake at the end. We did it as an overnighter. Very nice camping ground.
