First, the reason why the mileage on my hike is only 4.40 miles whereas other people have logged 5.50 miles is because I caught the trail from the campground area whereas they caught the trail from the Basin Store area.
This hike is downhill for the first half and then uphill on the way back. The trail takes you through a scenic canyon and culminates in a water pouroff known as The Window. The view is absolutely spectacular. If you walk out to the edge of the window, be careful as the rock is smooth and slippery.
About a 1/4 mile from The Window, you can take the Oak Springs Trail which leads up and over a steep mountain. The signs says it is 2.0 miles, but it seems longer, perhaps because the trail is so arduous. If you decide to take this Oak Springs Trail, be sure you're in good shape and have good balance. The trail is steep and there are narrow areas where a slip could result in a fatal fall.
