First half is through beautiful flowers and shrubbery, but with that there are bugs and bees. At the third or fourth stream crossing there's a big clearing and the landscape changes to dense forest. At this point my fiancé and I heard a distinct bear growl that made us stop in our tracks. DO NOT head out on this hike if you're not prepared to deal with bears! We did not have spray and hadn't seen anyone else on the trail that morning so we turned back. Not worth the risk!

love this trail! great clear water, amazing place to get away for a while.

keep going up the trail for a couple of miles to see the 60 ft double waterfall

Great hike.

Camped in Middle Lion this weekend and went exploring up this trail about 3 miles or so. Look for the trail camp on the right of the creek, then start looking for the trail on the other side. You have to cross the creek very early to find the trail or it dead ends about 0.5 mi in. The trail moves away from the water and was very hot, but you can detour down to the water a few times.

There is a large tree closing off the trail about a mile in, could not find another route. Otherwise very nice hike with lots of water and many stream crossings.
