Description

The trail forks just before you head down to the hand tram of Winner Creek Trail. The landscape changes from the forest to tall grass. There is one waterfall crossing which will get your shoes wet no matter how hard you try. When you reach the summit at Berry Pass, there are beautiful little tarns scattered about.

Flora & Fauna

I did this in the fall, while the blueberries and salmonberries were fresh. Berries mean bears, though, and we saw plenty of bear scat! Thankfully, no bears were seen, but bring bear spray and make lots of noise.
