Awesome hike! Cant wait to do it again!
Decent hike with lots of trees. Lots of switchbacks.
Nice views along the way. After about 2 1/2 miles the trail enters a sandy area near Alpine Creek. You can take the trail for several more miles up into the Alpine Creek Lakes area. The trail becomes difficult to follow in some areas after the sandy area. Eventually the trail appeared to come to a Y - one crossed the creek to the left but we took it to the right and never crossed the creek at any point. After several switchbacks, we made it to lake# 8523 on the map where another group had set up camp. Beautiful area with jagged peaks along the trail.
