We arrived in the late afternoon (2pm) and had the trail to ourselves. Unfortunately we only did the first half, but enjoyed every minute of it. The trail is very open, allowing us to walk in the warm autumn sunshine. From the first saddle there is a beautiful view... you are pretty much walking the entire trail with a good view. Next time we hope to do the whole trail.

Beautiful. Links to badger creek trail for a longer loop.

About .8 miles in is the steepest jaunt, just above the oak grove, but completely worth pushing through to see the dramatic forest change as you round the side of the hill. The change is intense and immediately noticeable in the vegetation; totally needed out on this one

This was a nice easy hike up to Flag Point Lookout. At the top there is great views as there should be for a lookout tower.

This was a great little hike. It is a pretty quick incline in a short distance and still had some large melting snow patches to go through. There was also A LOT of blowdown to climb over or go around. Very nice hiking along the creek and then getting to the beautiful lake was great. There are a couple places to camp around the lake. I would recommend this as a start point and then when you hit Divide trail take a right and head towards Lookout Point.
