Fern Falls - 2.7 miles
This hike is an extension of the hike to The Pool on the way to Fern Lake. The 1.7 miles to The Pool is a relatively easy hike with not too much elevation gain. Most of the elevation gain is in the last mile to the falls. You can notice the affects of the 2012 "Fern Lake Fire" at the footbridge that crosses a small stream that began in the Forest Canyon area. The trail then gains in elevation and switch backs through upper montane forest before reaching the Falls.
