Description

This very scenic trail is enhanced by much vegetation and a number of waterfalls. At one spot the hiker crosses the creek with a choice of wading the swift water or crossing on a very high fallen log. Trail continues to follow the creek through alpine timber and meadows. Of interest is the snow slide area that has left hugh piles of trees. The upper section is filled with glacial boulders that are more difficult to traverse. To the left of the trail and through the boulders is Arrowhead Lake. This is a very difficult climb with no defined trail, but well worth the effort to this scenic lake. To the right of the canyon is airplane Lake where the fisherman may catch a few rainbow trout. This lake sits for the most part under Mt. Hyman. Once again, there is no real trail to this lake and the hiker must negotiate granite rocks and ledges, but will be rewarded for the extra effort.
