Scenic and uncrowded. Trout in the lakes. Many day hikes and alternates in the area. We had a packer spot trip the whole family to Spirit Lake for a base camp. My dog got lost and went back to the trailhead, so I hiked out the same day I rode in, then hiked back to Spirit Lake the following day. Packer put the mileage at about 14 miles, not 21.
