Great but rocky road to Hunter Lake and Big Meadow. Plentiful water and edibles along the way.

I have done this trail several times. Do not confuse this with hunter creek trail. No water along the way. Note, you are hiking on a loose gravel dirt road the entire way. Wear good shoes and bring plenty of water. Also don't be disappointed when you get to the "lake", it is actually a marsh and the headwaters to hunter creek. Still for some reason I love this journey. Very active bear country as well.

This is a very strenuous great workout, I would love to do it again. The only issue I have with it is I didn't realize it's a big OFF ROAD Driving trail as well. So if you're looking to get lost in nature, think again. You will regularly be passed by 4 wheelers, dirt-bikes, etc. It tends to take you out of the nature moment. Other than that it's a wonderful challenge for someone looking to test themselves. You will sleep very good if you complete it.
