Just a heads up, I went up there today and ran into a mama bear and her 3 cubs about a 1/4 mile into the hike. My dog and I had a pretty good stare down with them until they wondered off. Just thought I would share.

A very pretty area, the trail is very rough and similar to a dry creek bed in many places. There are lots of down trees and branches, today there was still some snow and between the down trees and snow we lost the trail in a couple spots. I think later in the season it will be amazing with wildflowers but also harder to discern where the unkempt trail is.

This trail is pretty rough still in 2017 the sign shown here is no longer there just so you don't get confused this trail is listed as echo basin in the sweet home ranger district trail guide. wildflowers are unreal (lush and head high) amazing yet creating a hard path to see . Lots of water/streams. Very secluded,

Beautiful hike but the trail was a little rough. A few downed trees , some boggy muddy sections and thorny overgrowth made the going a little slow. Be sure to wear good boots and a good hiking stick would be a plus! Worth the short climb to enter the basin which was filled with wild flowers and great alpine views. Worth the effort! Also note, access to the trail was a two mile gravel logging road that was a little rough in places and no restroom facilities at or on the trail.

Nice short hike thru the trees to the meadow. We went memorial weekend there was skittle snow on the trail in places but many downed trees on the trail you had to crawl and try and make your way over, which proved difficult at times with little kids with us. The meadow was quite soggy in parts between the boardwalks. Overall not to bad, probably a little dryer closer to summertime but big plus no mosquitos!

A short uphill thru pines into a loop thru a sensitive meadow. I went at the end of summer and much of it was overgrown. But there was some pretty areas of short grass and scattered wetlands from multiple little (maybe a foot or two wide at most) streams trickling down the mountain thru the meadow.
