Hiking

The beaten path is so nice, it's just a shame to not go further. The nicest part of the trail is further along, where you get a better view in the valley/lakes, and also the more rocky landscape towards the middle of beaten path. This will be nice too, but I'd highly advise going further

Great trail - but the mosquitos were absolutely horrendous 7/14/18.

Fishing

I have both hiked and horseback ridden this trail. Rock Island has great fishing and is also a great spot to see pikas! Along Kersey meadow a new bridge was put in two years ago making crossing even better now. Really beautiful views of Kersey lake, Rock Island lake, and the river at the trail head on this hike. Perfect day trip for fishing if you get an early start. Skyline Guest Ranch does a straight ride there and back and a fishing trip up to Rock Island.
