Absolutely beautiful! Some parts are pretty intense but totally worth it.

Nice hike with good fishing. Option to continue along trail to Silver Lake or bush-wack along Huckleberry Creek to Huckleberry, Princes, or Avalanche Lake (none for faint of heart). Have gotten to lake on snowshoes but would not recommend to beginners.
