Wonderful place to stop and have a lunch or breakfast on the go. We loved watching a Kingfisher hunt crawfish. While we did not see any fish swimming around, it was nice to see some fly-fisherman catch trout.

Love this trail which takes one all the way up to Center Lake for a swim. The lake is not crystal clear, but reasonable beach and shady areas. Saw an elk on the hike. Many stream-crossings, but lovely hike.
