Description

The way to Arapaho trail is awesome and pretty much parallels the creek past lots of waterfalls. It's not frequently maintained so some spots are overgrown and it can be hard to see the trail. Sections of the trail are quite steep, especially descending over the ridge down to Crater Lake. It's well worth taking your time on the loose rocks and dirt.
