This trail follows the ridge above Lake Fork Creek which is a beautiful drainage filled with aspen and meadows. The trailhead and suggested overnight camping spot is Fish Lake Campground which offers a view of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area and good fishing in the lake itself (quoted from US Forest Service, Wallowa Whitman National Forest website).
This trail is generally clear of snow from early July to late September. Expect winter debris (down trees, etc.) in the early season. Trail may not be maintained on a regular basis – obstacles on the trail may be present year-round.
