Fairly strenuous hike that requires climbing over fallen trees along the path. This trail connects to several others including Elbow Lake and Park Butte.

Incredible experience camping on the creek bed but the trail needs serious attention once the switchbacks start.

I worked with a WTA crew on the first mile or so of the trail before attempting to use this trail to reach Park Butte. Due the snowfall and trail debris I turned around at 4200ft and camped in the creek bed instead; it was a great night and coming back down was the right call.

Phenomenal trail. We hiked it on a rainy day, so it was a bit muddy, but not bad. There is some old growth along the way that is beautiful. We couldn't see the views on account of the low clouds.
