    After a couple of miles, you mostly follow various ridges which, on a clear day, give you excellent views esp south to the Three Sisters, with occasional glimpses east to Mt Jefferson / 3-Finger Jack, etc. The view from the top of Browder Ridge is tough to match. Various clear flat spots along the way would make excellent backpack camping locations. Once you get to Browder Ridge, continue the trail to Heart Lake to round out to 10.1 miles. The lake is small but attractive. In the fall, the edges of the lake are still swampy. It's a somewhat steep descent into (and steep ascent out of) the lake, giving you the workout that the rest of the trail largely lacks (some switch-backs early on, but the rest of the trail is pretty easy).
