Great canyon view

Thu Jul 12 2012

We completed a section of this trail (ending at Dean Creek) in the beginning of June, 2012, and it became one of our favorite trails. The views are amazing, and there was some sections where the flowers were blooming in full power, and there was also lots of strawberry plants right by the trail (unfortunatelly, no strawberries in June...). This section is fairly easy to complete, execept for some logs that cut the trail and may require some scrambling. There are a few camping spots by Dean Creek (where you see a fairly big waterfall), and the view from those are very unforgettable. We reccomend waking up early to watch the sunrise from the area on the other side of the trail from the campsite. There is a lot of water sources avaliable if you are taking the longer backpack trip. We also took our dog on this trip, and she loved it. Definitelly reccomend.
