Really enjoyed this hike. We took our 8 month on it a couple years back. The first bit is very steep and then rolling hills. As you approach a meadow the trail disappears, continue walking to find Adam’s lake. Beautiful little lake. There was a black bear on the trail that scampered off. It was a bit difficult to track down the trip after leaving the lake, we had to walk along the river and scan the section to track it down. We would go on it again.

dont go on this hike! there are wayyyy better hikes all throughout the trinity alps. Huge elevation gain in short period of time. Not well-marked toward the top and not much great scenery.
