Nice secluded, shady trail. Gorgeous views at the beginning, but trees obstruct the rest of the hike. Went mid-morning, was pretty sure I was going to be the only mammal on the trail until I was nearly back to the trailhead when a doe and I startled each other. Unfortunately she darted back into the trees before I could get a picture. Most of the evelvation change is at the last 1/4 of the trail. Being June, it was no surprise to find Silver Creek dried up.
Once you turn off of 010 onto 008, it's a dirt/gravel road from there. My Nissan Altima made it ok but parts of the road have severe dips and large rocks, proceed with caution.

Very disappointed that I didn't see any sheep

Nice trail that doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic. There's still a lot of snow in some areas but easily passable.
