Great hike

Have always loved this hike. Not as easy as it used to be since the big fire that went through it a few years ago, but it is still a beautiful hike.

great hike, but hard seeing all the burn areas. rarely used, compared to the past. fish in lakes, mostly smaller with a few surprises. lots of wildlife, and established campsites.

started at the Tamarack trailhead and was a nice easy trail, even in snow.

Just did this hike with my wife last weekend for a quick overnight trip. Nice easy hike. The trails were all clear and in good condition. We came in from the Tamarack trail head.
