Did the Salt Creek Falls to Vivian Lake and ended up 2miles down a forest service road. Best advice is to turn right towards diamond falls not left to follow the Vivian lake trail sign. Go see Diamond Falls and then hike up to the lookout and keep going up. You will eventually cross railroad tracks and look to your left for the trail.

The trail was very lightly trafficked despite the crowds at salt creek falls. Once you cross the train tracks be careful to look for the trail to the left of the road directly ahead.

We the company of 9 tried to make it today to the lake. Honestly tried but had to bail because the higher the more the trail was covered with snow and thus hard to find. We reached Fall Creek Falls and took pictures, will probably give it another try in summer.

The trail has several logs across it since we took it a few years ago but is still a good hike. It is a lot of down hill that you will have to come back up to return to your car. My 7 and 11 year olds did great but it was slow going on the return.

Great trail. Last mile is very difficult for kids. Very steep. Lake is warm. Lots of frogs to catch.
