We started at snow lake and hiked a few miles in and then back out before heading home. Such a beautiful hike and we plan on coming back and finishing it. Definitely bring extra shoes for after the hike as there are several water crossings. Also the drive to get there you get to drive through a really cool old town it looks like they are restoring or something.

It's been a long time since I hiked this trail but remember it fondly. I backpacked it with some of my best friends growing up as part of our BSA 50 miler. We took the down hill route from willow creek campground to snow lake. It was an awesome experience as a young teenager.
