Nice backpacking trip, with beautiful meadows and nice little lake at the end. While 'moderate' for most of the hike, the switchbacks at top were fairly taxing. Fished along the creek and at the lake as well. The trail is labeled as 'heavy use', but we didn't see a soul between miles 4 and 11. Be advised that in this area you are required to have a 'hard sided' bear container, and non-compliance is 'no more than $5000 fine'.
