This was absolutely fabulous. Great scenery of all kinds. Interesting bridges, waterfalls, an interesting sign pointing you to a Toilet about 3.5 miles in, (didn't get that reference) but it led us to a nice place to rest alongside the river with lots of great rocks for those of you who are rockhounds! Gonna go back and go right instead of left and up to Echo Lakes! Saw an eagle, geese, ducks, chipmunks, tons of Elk had been thru. Great trail and we lucked out on a beautiful day.

Arived at 9 this morning. NW Forest Pass or Interagency pass required. Can pay onsite. Only 3 other cars at the trailhead. Weather was cool but a little overcast. Trail is very well maintained and easy to follow. Parts were a little wet and you could see horse shoe tracks, but never saw the horses/riders. Only saw 3 or 4 other groups/pairs. Lots of bridges to cross. Hiked past the upper Greenwater Lake, about 6 miles round trip. Crossed the bridge that was "closed" due to storm damage. Bridge tilts to one side and one section of top rail missing on the side leaning towards the water. No wobble/sway when crossing the bridge. Bridge possible missing after the upper lake (going towards Echo Lake). Crossed at the horse ford to get to the next bridge. Enjoyed the hike and will hike again to Echo Lake.

Great Hike! Bridge was a little questionable but we made it across with no issues.
