Almost like 2 different hikes... - The first moderately steep and narrow on sometimes loose footing. Sparse vegetation, rock slide areas and substantial drop-offs on your left. Mostly vertical until just before you cross Perham Creek. - Then is a more gradual ascent through scrub oak and aspen up along the side of Perham Creek. Cool and lots of vegetation... very pleasant . You reach the upper meadow at about the 2 mile mark, just after a large stand of aspen. Pretty hike, good workout, 3 hours roundtrip at a leisurely pace. BTW, this is NOT a mountain bike trail. Sorry, MTB'ers.
