Itinerary description

A lovely climb along the creek through forest (shade in August heat). Steeper through old growth forest to pass. Following a steep climb up the ridge to the left, cross ridge with magnificent views on either side, including of the Grand Teton. Pass through Aspen forests and sage brush. Somewhat steep decline on rocks, but easier once reaching the tree line. Lovely and diverse hike full of wildflowers. Official map says 9.1 miles. My GPS marking potentially slightly off but trail clear.
