The western end of this trail goes past several nice lakes to camp at, in particular Jorn Lake. Unfortunately, a majority of the trail is bone dry and covered in blowdown. This is the result of the B&B Complex fire raging through here. The trail has recovered little over the years.

Remember to fill your water before crossing the section between Minto Pass Trail and Little Bowerman Lake!
