The trail is well marked and leads to the Northrup family homestead. The Northrups were a pioneer family in the area. Follow the homestead tail to the main homestead and up to a small clear lake. The trail covers meadows, large boulders and rocky ground. This part of the trail would be suitable for families with children. The trailhead is easy to find, just a few miles west of Electric City . You will follow a well-maintained trail down through the beautiful rock canyon. Soon you will be closer to the creek and there'll be a wooden footbridge. Flooding and mud are common (depending on the season), but you can usually find a way around the puddles.
