You'll see the trail along the edge of the timber to the upper left corner of the cut block where the trail continues through the trees.   Features: One of the easier alpine trails and one of the best. Follow the trail up the ridge. Watch for mountain goats and moose. You can hike across the alpine valley and up the slopes on the far side. Water is abundant and there are several waterfalls in the alpine valley.
