This diverse and enjoyable loop is a good example of how creative hikers can do some fine backpacking despite having a road in the middle of their trip. The highway only briefly intrudes on the wonderful scenery, and it provides easy access and several options to shorten your hike if you have less time or the weather turns bad. The loop described here visits two wilderness areas and a wide variety of terrain. You will enjoy dense forests, impressive waterfalls, high lakes, view-packed ridges, and many miles of wildflower-filled meadows.
