Did a 3 day backpack from toketee lake to swiftwater last weekend. Nice trail segment with no ticks and lots of blooming flowers in the shade most of the time until soda springs reservoir where it was really hot the rest of the way so water was important to have. The broken bridge at medicine creek was passable thru a detour to the side of the bridge but definitely requires a tiny bravado and climbing the steep embankment. I could tell a few folks had done it. There's a nice swim hole at Boulder Creek that you shouldn't miss. One problem with the free red colored downloadable national forest/blm map is it shows campgrounds along the trail when they are actually on the opposite side of the river on the road side.

Beautiful trail with complete changes in scenery. At the Toketee lake side it is lush then it changes to forested at the top of the initial climb, then it is bouldery with moss, then tall pine trees and drier. I only did the first three miles then turned back, because I didn't have anyone to pick me up, but I loved this hike.

Nice all day hike. Gorgeous views from the top. Lots of ticks so cover in spray. Can't wait to do it again.

First to Review

Nice hike - lots of different scenery. Late Aug found lots of bear scat and no mosquitos. Not much water along the trail - mostly near the Soda Spring trailhead.
