Just did this today. Great trail to the lake. Great scenery. Scrambled around the south side of the lake and went up to the ridge overlooking the basin which feels Little Harrison lake. Met some guys who said they knew a way from Little Harrison back to the car, it was bushwacking hell. The only reasonable way out of Little Harrison is..,,,, there isn't one. It's a pretty lake but so what. Skip it. I'll try to post a picture here for your enjoyment. If you're nuts enough to go there, exit over the high ridge leading to Beehive lake then from the lake take the trail out. Have fun

It was a little tougher then I expected but it was beautiful & worth pushing through.

As novice hikers with a five and six year old. It was a tad bit more challenging than we thought. We loved the amazing scenery and the clear trail. The inclines were quite decent for our first hike. Lots of places to stop for a shady break.

Don't waste your time! Find a different access point to the independence creek trail!
NF-956 does not appear to be a road for vehicles anymore. It's signage even lists it as a trail. At location: 47.888310, -116.300597 there is a gate that blocks motorized vehicle traffic. It's obvious there has not been vehicle traffic on this road for a long time. You reach this gate with 3 miles of driving left before you hit the actual trail. So, you cannot drive to the trailhead as suggested in this listing. Really you have to park at the gate, which adds an extra 3 miles to your excursion. (Straight down hill at the beginning and straight uphill at the end). Also there is no water at the gate. So camping at the start, by the gate, the night before, when we were 3 hours into the national forest and expecting to be by a substantial creek threw us off.
Additionally, when you do reach the listed "trailhead" it is very hard to find. The beavers have built some serious dams that have severely flooded the area, and likely changed the rest of the immediate landscape. The very first creek crossing is so flooded by the beavers, we had to wade through 4 feet of water and couldn't ever actually find the trail again.
Needless to say this was not exactly the adventure we had hoped for.
