My pictures are bit old but the whole area still stuffers from fire. However the main loop and hike which is the 10 miles doesn't take you around the lake to the crash site of the B-23. Plan an extra 2 miles for this as well as a couple hours as the "trail" to the crash site is obstructed with hundreds of downed trees from the fires that came through this area a few years ago. If you make the trip in early spring, plan on getting wet if you want to get to the crash site, the water level is very high and the plane itself is in about 8 inches of water. All in all it's a good day hike and the area is recovering from the fires a few years ago, lots of young growth and green, mixed with gray and charred trees.
