This short trail leads to a beautiful swimming and fishing spot. The trail is very steep in sections. It was also the site of a forest fire in 2017.

Hiking

beautiful unmarked trail, leading to a river featuring a small waterfall into a nice swimming hole. The hole often has fly fishers during salmon season and has a lot of rocks so careful swimming. the main trail splits at one point. Left is steep but easy to climb and leads to the swimming hole bank. If water isn't too high you can climb around a rock face to see the waterfall. The right path is rough and leads to a small outcrop over the falls with a single pine tree. Great view but not great footing. The right side goes right by a forest fire site as well.

One of my favourite secret spots. A short but very steep, unmarked trail brings you to a beautiful swimming and salmon fishing spot next to a waterfall along Mint Brook.
