I hiked this trail without the map. I started from the campground and ended up going off trail and going for the Ridgeline peaking at the top of one of the open peaks. Gorgeous views and the cool weather and some snow still left in the ground for March was an added bonus. the basic trail is goid, but if you feel adventurous, go fir the top.. it's well worth it.

Awesome hike, even in early spring and with some hail.
