A four day pack trip out of Half Moon Lake trailhead to camp on Fall Creek. From Half Moon you can ride past Fayette lake to camp. On the return to Half Moon ride north past the Cook Lakes and then west to come to the trailhead from the north.

We only hiked the first two miles of this trail. The high water in the lake prevented going further. We only planned on doing the first three miles anyway. Road to trailhead washed out about a quarter mile from the start, we had to park back at the Half Moon Lodge. Moderate hike for the first two miles, but very scenic.
