Backpacked in. Camped 2 nights. Seen a large bull moose right below Parika lake on the 2nd day. Around 20 people came up in the time I was there. Very beautiful. Hiked up to Parika's summit, beautiful views. Lots of fresh water. Awesome hike. Awesome stay.

Saw many bull moose. Last mile and a half are definitely strenuous. Trail was well maintained with a few wet spots. Beautiful flowers and very green.
