Beautiful hike out to the cabin, which we stayed at for 5 days. Has amazing views and is quite peaceful and serene. Once at the cabin the trail ends and the true hiking begins. We went at the end of May and I look forward to returning.

Beautiful fall hike. The terrain was easy to cross and the footpath well maintained. You have to walk from the parking area to the trailhead on the road, but since there is no traffic it is not a problem.

East, not much fun on a cloudy day as there is no view.

I did a trail maintenance on this trail. And when it is clear sky's it is a nice view of the mountains. It is flat in the beginning and then leads gradually up the creek. Can get muddy in some parts. But the cabin at the end is nice and a good place to spend a night.
