Photographer's Note

"Start at the far side of Twin Lakes at the campground, where a hiking trail starts ending at Lake Mamie. Take the trail to the left where it passes a cool mountain spring and wanders through wet meadows lush with a variety of tall floweres, before climbing through a shady hemlock forest that covers the lover slopes of the Rim. Glacial polish and groves can be seen on some of the outcrops on top of the Rim. The trail's first switchback borders the edge of Horseshoe Falls, a mass of boulders marking a former outlet of Horseshoe Lake. The trail nears Twin Falls several times, finally reaching the top of the Rim at Lake Mamie."
