Great route to Dollar Lake. We spent a night and went up Barrett Spur next day. Next time I'd plan 2 night to allow more time on the Spur. Barrett Spur is AMAZING! We had no trouble finding trail except in the meadow where it gets boggy. Trail crews must have removed falls.

Steep climb with lots of blown down trees to scramble over and make finding the trail a little taxing but Timberline is beautiful in either direction once you're there. Spent the night at Dollar Lake. Absolutely stunning backdrop of Mount Hound for my camp.

Trail has not been maintained. Lots of trees down, trail was hard to follow. It was a cloudy and rainy day, and we lost the trail around 2 miles in and turned back.

Tough trail to find and a hard one to climb. Hiked through Dollar fire but once out the flowers were still looking good. There are two areas that are very wet even with our dry summer. One on the hillside is quite large but there is a trail around to your right just before you hit the muck. Didn't see the trail until on the way back down cutting through the brush. Wish we would have had just enough juice once we hit the Timberline Trail to check out Dollar Lake (go to the east and its suppose to be 1/4 mile to a marker on your right easy to miss).
