Details

This beautiful high mountain hike goes along streams from 10,000 to 12,000 feet and has both wild flowers and great mountain views. While the round trip distance is only 7 miles this is a hike that rewards those of us who are in fairly good shape.



There are several stream crossings that require rock hopping. Boots should not get filled with water if as long as you don't slip of the wet stones.  There are some downed trees from an avalanche that are not very difficult to negotiate.



This is an all day trip so you shouldn't plan to go out dancing after dinner!
