Planned this hike with a hop over to Island Lake, but the weather had other designs. Steady, sloping climb through lots of forest. Maybe views, maybe not - visibility went to nil after we left. We’ll return for a revisit sometime again.

Amazing hike. Tons of fish. Clear trails. Best of all, NOT ONE SINGLE MOSQUITO ( Early September)

Fantastic trail, great hike, great fishing, lots of wildlife. Mosquitos were manageable (July). There are some really nice campsites along the eastern edge of Tomahawk lake. The stream crossing just past the Christina Lakes Trail split was a little tricky. There is an unmaintained (but clear) trail up to Thumb Lake. Moderate traffic.

The historic site is a significant site along the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails. The drive to the site is gorgeous and remote. The drive alone is worth the visit. The trail, other than the markers is a simple walk along the creek and high plains. The primitive camping was nice and a bonus with the toilets.

I actually stumbled upon this trail taking backroads enroute to Salt Lake.
