This is an absolutely beautiful area for a couple of days of climbing, fishing and camping. The walk in is ~ 2.5 miles with about a 500 ft elevation drop according to the sign at the trail head.

The area really shines for someone ready to redpoint Tipping the Vessel of Knowledge (5.11d).
My youngest son caught 11 fish in 2 days without really trying. They were mostly Brook trout with one "Gigantic Cutthroat" that got away.
