Great trail!! It's a bit of work going up the canyon,but worth every bit. We saw so many hummingbirds in the meadows it was great! Views are excellent, really cool forest.
The trail up to the canyon looks down on a creek lined with deciduous trees, maples i think, so even if you miss the summer flowers you will see the autumn colors. Long canyon itself is near perfect. There is a wonderful camp spot at the east end of the canyon, and the meadow terrace 3/4 of the way up is great, looks like a zen garden with perfectly placed boulders. The geology is amazing with the contrast in mountains from south to north. This is an amazing valley!
