Didn’t make it all the way to the end of the trail, just to the top/beginning of the ridge which becomes a meadow of sorts. At the beginning of June, there weren’t many flowers yet. Perhaps later in the season. Had to do a bit of bushwacking as the trailhead/forgetmenot pond area/parking lot was closed for construction. Quite a few river/stream crossings so this trail is better done on a hot day so you’ll dry off faster. Pack water shoes if you have them. Many of the rocks are very slippery. Very steep incline. Mostly rocky. Lots of exposure. You’ll want a hat. Neat, unique shaped rocks to see & lookout for “the wind chime tree.” Nice view of forgetmenot pond at the top. Was very windy.
