Long day hike or overnight composed of two short hikes. Trail leads into the back country, climbs Mt Holmes. Great views. Carry bear spray and know how to use it. Trail is flat to rolling for first 5 miles. Ford or walk the log over the stream crossing. Back country campsites at base of Mt Holmes (must register). After the campsites, trail climbs next 4-5 miles, some scree toward top. Bring warm gear for top. Great views!
