Cool hike, very pretty lakes at the top. Lots of little side trails to explore around on as well.

Easy hike, poorly signed. Trailhead wasn't easy to find, but the sights were pleasant. Fairly busy area. Also, the entry is easier from the Elkhorn Crest Trailhead than from the Anthony Lake shoreline.

Love the scenery here!

very beautiful

Great quick hike! Beautiful small lake and falls!

Went in late September 2016, it was great!. However, it was snowing at the submit and rained a lot on the way up and down. Wasn't prepared for wet weather either. Switch backs are a bit rough at first, and didnt realize how much elevation you gain either. Overall though, i'd do it again. It was fun, scenery is great.

We just did the first part up to Black Lake. It was absolutely beautiful and very easy except for one steep part

We backpacked this trail during the first week of June 2016. The high lakes basin of the Eagle Cap Wilderness was still snowed in but this trail was open. The first couple of miles were brushy but then it opened out into rock fields, Old Growth forest and meadows. There was a forest fire in the first two miles which is partly why its brushy. We only saw two other parties, from a distance, for the three days we were there. A friendly doe followed us for a bit. The wildflowers were fantastic!

From historic Sumpter to the beautiful mountains, this trail in beautiful Eastern Oregon has it all. Be sure to allow enough time to spend in Sumpter. Named after Fort Sumpter, it has historic, quaint, a splash of modern and scenery in every direction.

it is actually 22 miles
