We started on Mineral Road at the south fork of Digger Creek. The trail runs parallel to the creek and crosses it in several locations. The trail is obscured by downed limbs and large timber in spots but the beauty of the area is well worth the trouble. The lake is pristine, stunning really and larger than in appears on the map. We hiked back down the north fork of Digger creek. The trail is very obscured. The canyon down is narrow, so just heading down hill and staying near the creek is sufficient to get you back to the road. There is a special treat about seven tenths of a mile down. Digger Creek Falls. They are not on the map, but they are multi level, and fall 15 to 20 feet in each of four steps. Simply beautiful. All in all, a great hike. Not for the kids.
