The Salt River Range offers some great hiking opportunities if you are seeking solitude and this is among the best of them. Although this area has fought a losing battle for wilderness area designation it has much beauty to offer. The trailhead is located at another one of those "hard to find" locations and a GPS is rather handy while driving to find it. There are a number of stream crossings (Little Coral Cr & Poker Cr) right off the bat and the trail was rather wet as I travelled it. The forest in this area consist of massive Engleman's that seemed to dwarf my existance. The trail was not well kept at the time yet it was easy not to lose. Lake Alice itself is a beautiful lake with fair fishing. Overall this was a great hiking experience. I regard it as one of those great suprises in an area with many more popular routes.
