Description

This is a popular hiking route, and for good reason: it's not too tough but tough enough to make you work for the perfect lunch spot on the shore of Lake Angeles. At the start from the parking lot on the north end, you're greeted by Ennis Creek along which an abundance of life forms go about their business. Be careful on the first bridge, because the scenery is distractingly amazing. After a while it turns to a quieter tableau of evergreens, who keep you company on your way to the lake.

There is nothing too steep or scrambly, and the smooth trail makes for a faster hike down. Just be mindful of the other trail users.

Flora & Fauna

Huge mushrooms, slugs, and moss.
