Amazing backcountry trail that takes you up through several streams and past some high alpine lakes to the base of Mt Eddy. From here you can choose to go up and check out the summit of continue onto the lower part of Sisson Callahan trail.
Steep technical climbs throughout this section of the trail, but its worth it
