The Trailhead has space for about 10 cars - NO FACILITIES - Take a camera & be sure to carry WATER - The description of the lasso loop is when hiking CLOCKWISE.

80% of this lasso loop hike has a tree canopy. Keep your eyes open for others in quads & mountain bikes. It's a well defined trail & there is a sign post marking the junction where the lasso loop part of the hike begins/ends.

From the trail head, you'll gradually gain elevation, you'll pass two water storage tanks & then come to a saddle. Shortly past the saddle you'll start your descent, you'll see a sign pointing to a beautiful vista. This offers a spectacular view & a place to sit/rest if you so wish. Shortly past the vista you'll come to the sign/junction which marks the beginning of the lasso loop part of this hike. Moving clockwise, continue your descent down toward the DOWNSTREAM Brown's Creek Bridge. After crossing the bridge you'll begin your ascent & if you look over to your right, you'll see parts of the trail you've just descended. You'll continue your ascent & come to the UPSTREAM bridge crossing of Brown's Creek. You'll continue a gradual ascent until you again come to the post/sign junction at which point you'll have completed the lasso part of the hike. From this point you'll retrace your track past the two water storage tanks & back to the trail head.

Perfect pick for a Sunday. No one else around. Explored some spur trails leading to adventures to come.

Did Browns plus some bushwhacking exploring the area on a day with very changable weather. I picked this trail to stay beneath the snow line which is currently about 6000 feet. It was drizzling when I started, turned to snow and ended up in the sunshine. Exhilarating.
