The trail was great. My kids ( 9 and 11) and I spent the night on the west end of the lake. Beautiful views and great fishing!

Hiking this trail,was great. Plenty of mountain scenery.It's wide open,andcan camp almost anywhere. Same lake on the way would be one great place to camp,unless you can backpack all the way to Cater lake. Then from the lake you can do a lot of back country hiking.2004-06-07
