Description

If you are part mountain goat, you will love this. Trail starts from the river campsite. Initially a moderate hike but then requires climbing and traversing narrow ledges. At the top, it levels out into a creek bed which is muddy, follow to its end at a small waterfall. Trail is generally clear but not well marked. Interesting shift in eco system from bottom of the canyon to the top. Concur with the black star rating.
