second time to this beautiful mid length hike. 72* sunny, minimal bugs. a little muddy to start...loved hiking by stream most of the time...clear greenish pools. butterflies and frogs and toads. a freezing cold dip in the last pool. ahhhhh

This was a memorable hike completed in August of 2018. It was recommended by a ranger. We took a canoe through south branch pond and started the trail where the river emerges from the valley. After about a mile we decided to go for a swim in one of the natural water pools that the mountains had created. Beautiful. I will return to do this hike alone.
