Nice short rugged hike. The the orange flagging at the lower trailhead on Shore Drive now leads down to Admiral's Cove on the Basin with some nice rocky perches to look across the Basin. The uphill trail is harder to spot. The upper trailhead offf Snowy Owl has more parking spots. It seems to get a fair bit of night time use by teenager party lovers so the first lookoff at Eagle's Nest has a lot of grafitti and garbage. This tapers off and the rest of the trail was unspoiled - very little garbage.
