The walk can be done in either direction. The written directions take you up to Cub Lake then down to the "Pools" and back on the Fern Lake trail to the parking lot. (I like going to the 'Pools' first and then up to Cub Lake and back down to the trailhead. Starting at elevation of 8080ft and gaining 540ft. This is a great loop trail to see wildlife if you are lucky.

Awards and fees: IVV Credit Only
