A very pleasant trail—not too steep, well shaded except at the upper meadows, and quite scenic—leads up the South Fork. Above the confluence of Steavale Creek the steep-sided lower canyon gives way to a wide, glaciated valley, bedecked with flower-filled meadows and backed by glistening granite ridges and peaks. Once you’ve climbed the last half mile to the crest of the divide, you drop into the cirque holding Long Gulch Lake.
