"A strenuous three- or four-day backpacking trip through high-altitude scenery and lots of elk.The hike starts out spectacularly and then gets better. The first 2 miles of trail meander along Specimen Creek and through mature, unburned forest. This section of travel is fl at, easy, and in great shape; you can frequently see moose in the meadows along the stream. If you chose the clockwise route, turn left (northeast) at the first junction." Read more
