Lots of lake views, lots of mountain views, even though the trail remains forested throughout. Well maintained and easy to follow. Ross Dam a plus.

We walked down to the dam then took a boat to Ross Resort where we rented a boat for the day. Round-trip, the hike was about 2.5 miles and the day boating was priceless! We made it to British Columbia with views of glaciers, suspension bridges, a dozen or so waterfalls, and private islands along the way. Amazing!

Trail is well maintained to big beaver campground, but currently beyond that there are quite a few trees down.

Great hike, a few elevation gains and drops but overall very mild. Most of the trail is under cover in the Forrest with periodic lookouts. Later in the year the streams for water along the way are dried up until mile 7. Semi-easy, our friends took a small corgi and she made it just fine.
