“A backcountry run with views and lake access.”— Matt Barnes
Head right onto Falls Creek Trail. The first few miles are steep but with good switchbacks. The middle few miles of the trail are on a bench above the creek with great trail. It's not too steep and weaves through beargrass and lodgepole pine.
The last section to Camp Pass is steep and loose. Then, the trail enters a burned out area which adds some great views!
From the pass, the trail descends to Camp and Otatsy Lakes. You can turn around and climb to return back to Monture Trailhead or continue south into Lake Creek and the North Fork trailhead or loop back to the Monture via several trails.
