Beautiful hike! We went April 10 and made the first footprints (okay, holes) in some areas of the spring snowpack. It was a good workout as some parts of the trail were still covered in up to 10 inches of snow and our feet punched right through the surface. Without the snow and ice, this would be a great trail so we'll try later in the season next time. According to offline AllTrails tracking, the wilderness boundary sign was at 2.4 miles, the Crow Creek crossing (nice little rustic log bridge) was at 3.5 miles, and the falls at 5.5 miles. Gave it 4 stars because there are so many fallen trees blocking the trail, especially farther in. Even so, we'd do it again!

This trail weaves close and far from the creek, through the deep forest. 4 miles up we came to the water fall and turned back. In the fall looking forward to the lake, the colors will be spectacular.

Beautiful trail meandering along the river. Fishing along the way. Moderate. Hiked to water fall about 5 miles back. Very quite and very few people. Didn't complete the whole trail....yet. Next season...
