The grand scenery and solitude found along this trail are worth the drive. Sharp peaks, granite ridges, and sheer cliffs dominate the glacially scoured Picayune Valley. Old-growth forests, lush meadows, and aspens dot the valley floor, and the trail leads to a scenic cascade and an even more spectacular waterfall. This trail packs a lot of outstanding Sierra landscape into a relatively short hike.
