This is an out and back trail with mild elevation gain that takes you through interesting landscapes, including rainforest-like vegetation, rocky fields, dry open areas and the Skagit River. About halfway down, the trail leads along the top of a gorge, from which you can look down at the turquoise waters of Lake Diablo. At the end of the trail the Ross Dam is visible. This trail does not have the most beautiful views of any hike in the area, but the varied vegetation keeps things interesting.

This is an out and back trail that takes you through interesting landscapes, including rainforest-like vegetation, rocky fields, and dry open areas. About halfway down, the trail leads along the top of a gorge, from which you can look down at the blue-green waters of Lake Diablo. At the end of the trail the Ross Dam is visible. The views aren't stellar, but the water is very pretty when you can see it and the mix of vegetation made it an enjoyable hike for me. If you're looking for big views, seek elsewhere.

Good hike but the end of the trail wasn't very exciting. Leads you to a bridge by the Dam.
