Ascent Trip Report

I parked at little onion reservoir and followed the road up to the pack trail, and then followed the trail up to Hidden Meadow. The trail disappeared quite a few times, but I was able pick it up usually at the head of whichever meadow I lost it in.

On the hike out I attempted dropping from Outlaw Meadow directly down into Little Onion to save some time, however this ended up being an hour of relentless battle with dense undergrowth along the side of Alder Creek. I do not recommend this short cut, it would have been much more pleasant to have went out the way I came in.
