  • Visit four lakes on this trail -- Beaver Plant, Upper and Lower Ashland, and Twin Falls
  • The rainy day kept people away; I only ran into two parties, and no one past Upper Ashland
  • You have to be constantly aware of your footing on this trail -- many slick logs, rocks, and plenty of mud and water.
  • The downhill trail from Lower Ashland to Twin Falls Lake was dark, wet, and spooky. I got soaked -- and loved every minute of it. Great trail.
