Beautiful trail. Done this one a few times. This time continued up the canyon to Gilbraltar Road/Rock. Amazing hike, nice creek flows. Shaded most of the way until you get to the meadow. From there you can complete this by heading west towards the Tunnel Trail or continue up the steeper climb to Gilbraltar Road.
