This was a fine hike! Although it was on a Sunday and there were about 15 cars at the trail head, I doubt that we saw 15 people all afternoon. We almost made it to the junction of the "M" trail before encountering a thunderstorm. Not really being prepared for a hike in the rain, we headed back to the car. We will definately finish this at another time.

Very easy, creek crossing was a piece of cake. Nice views...wish it were a loop, though.
