The mighty Box Canyon Creek

After a short initial climb, most of the next three miles are an easy and pleasant wander through a mix of brushy meadows and conifer trees, with occasional crossings of small creeks — none of which present any difficulty. There are not a lot of features along the way, but one of the better ones is this place where the trail meets with Box Canyon Creek. This makes a nice place to stop for a drink and a snack. Here, Box Canyon Creek wants to be a big waterfall, with only limited success.
