Description

Starting at Campsite 16, the trail is clearly marked and easy to follow the entire way. From the beginning, follow the trail markers to make your way past three scenic lakes and numerous fantastic views. This area is a local favorite, and you'll be sure to see why when you visit.

If you visit during the summer, keep your eyes peeled for gorgeous wildflowers growing in a nearby meadow and fisherman capitalizing on the region's native trout.
