Camp was great. Weather was Great. Company was great. Hikes were decent. Location for training for a Big Expedition was Astronomical. There isn't a whole lot of "events" on these loops however there is a great mixture of ups and downs, in and outs, back and forths. I recommend this area to any beginning backpacker looking to train and condition for something bigger. Saw a few bottles and trash in the "Lost Lake" area .5 miles south before the road turns to gravel, make a left and follow the signs. It's a nice unwind. Not Spectacular but definitely not a place to pass up for a nice overnighter. The energy is great in this park.

Outstanding Hike

There are LOTS of stairs...be prepared! Great views and scenery throughout. This has been the best hike my wife and I have been on since we got back from Colorado. If hiking on the weekends, I would suggest heading out early to get decent parking and avoid the crowds. Lots of trail options...some unmarked. The maps provided at the trail heads are a bit confusing...and may not be to scale...its hard to tell with all the stairs.

Nice trail for the area. It follows a narrow ridge line, to a couple overlooks and then descends to the valley floor. A lot of steps. Well worth the trip.
