Description

If you are part mountain goat, you will love this. Trail starts from the river campsite. Initially a moderate hike but then requires climbing and traversing narrow ledges. At the top, it levels out into a creek bed which is muddy, follow to its end at a small waterfall. Trail is generally clear but not well marked. Interesting shift in eco system from bottom of the canyon to the top. Concur with the black star rating.

this is a very difficult hike, steep and rocky, narrow ledges and large falls much of the way. Levels out at the top where there is a small waterfall — 2h 30m
