Great trail with many open spaces to camp. The trail is a lot of steep dry creek bed so there are a lot of rocks. The lakes are all great and also provide some great camping once you make it up there.

Beautiful hike with steep inclines and eroded trails but beautiful streams and well cared for paths. Lakes, views, streams, and lots of squirrels.
