First 1/4 mile of this trail was very difficult to follow and I almost gave up twice. Lots of deadfall & game trails had me going in circles for awhile but I eventuality found the trail along the pipeline. The last 1/2 mile to the spring was very nice with great views of the valley below,a berry patch & lots of green along the trail. The spring itself has been tapped with pipes going in just about every direction. Took the trail back a little ways before finding a spur trail down to the Twilight campground road and walked it back to the trailhead completing a loop.

On the way back down the mountain, there were hundreds of huge caterpillars crossing the road. I have never seen anything like it before and almost could not believe my eyes!
Stopped at Roper Lake on the way home to watch the sunset.
