Can only get to this trailhead with a 4 wheel vehicle the road is carved up by runiff. Got to trailhead early enough (8:45) am that we did not see anyone else until the last bit of the return trip. Beginning is steep through fields and some forest, then mostly moderate forest trails. Could only get to granite lake because of snow. Roundtrip was about 6.2 miles.

The hike to Goodwin lake is really beautiful and not so hard. The beginning is a little steep, but then it levels out until you get to Goodwin lake. About 3 miles to the lake. Continue around the left side of the lake, then head on the path that goes to open fields. It will get really steep there, and you will go around the south side of the mountain and head up. You will pass onto the alpine level, so no more trees. When you reach the top, the views are scenic. Sheep mountain can be seen and so can the Tetons. A super good hike, would 100% recommend this for someone looking to Summit a nice mountain!
