"Hike along a delightful waterway through a deep, glacier-carved valley shrouded in spectacular old-growth forest. Some of the biggest and oldest trees in the area can be found along this trail, one of the quietest within the Monument. There are no alpine views, so save this hike for an overcast day." Read more
