Description

From the trailhead, the Broads Fork Trail #055 ascends through a peaceful forest as it makes its way toward the Broads Fork drainage. The trail at this point is well-maintained, although still steep in most sections. About a mile from the trailhead, the trail crosses a footbridge right by a very picturesque cascade.

About another mile from the bridge, the trail comes out into the glacial valley with great views of O'Sullivan (Sunrise) and Dromedary peaks, as well as a couple of beaver ponds (with a weird log crossing in there as well).

The trail continues, although (at least in early summer) it gets faint and sometimes covered by snow in early winter.
