This hike provides great views, multiple waterfalls, and solitude amongst the pines and sycamores- all in a relatively short distance. This was the first day of hunting season and although there were hundreds of hunters in and about the Mazatzals this morning, nary a one was on this trail. The day began with the cloudy mist from a previous days rainfall still hugging the upper reaches of both Mt. Ord and Little Mt. Ord and the foliage was showing the early signs of decay that appears before the first frost. There were many fresh "signs" of wildlife; and, I was fortunate to spend some time with three deer who had been clever enough to avoid the rifles by using this trail. I promised myself to return sometime when those waterfalls are in full bloom-- they must be spectacular. Considering the short drive from the Valley, ready access in almost any kind of vehicle and mildly easy hiking this trail provides a pretty good return for your investment.
