Absolutely one of my favorite hikes for a short yet challenging overnighter. The difficulty of the trail generally means little or no traffic, and we (husband/wife/8year old son)set up our tent in absolute solitude. Dall sheep can be seen high on the mountainsides overlooking a berry filled valley, including high and low bush blue berries, salmon berries and tundra berries as the trail climbs into an alpine valley. At the headwaters of Falls creek a pristine lake lies at the foot of an un-named peak, all told almost 4000 feet of elevation gain in under 3 miles. The view back down to the oceanside start of our journey was absolutely beautiful.
