This is an easy hike through an open field of ferns and tall grass. You also pass through a section of rhododendron as you make your way to Choke Creek, a winding stream that is a favorite among fishermen and backpackers, who have set up a number of fishing spots and campsites beside the stream. If you need a little serenity, you’ll find it here.
