This was exactly the kind of hike I was looking for. Beautiful well maintained trail not too strenuous. Lots of water right now because the snow is melting, parts of the trail have turned into little streams. Very peaceful. At one point the trail was covered in lady bugs for about 20 ft. I love this area!! I can’t wait to go back explore the other trails and maybe camp.
