The location of these photos are along the stream loop trail starting from Klipchuck Campground. The semi-developed trail includes a few steps and some log removal and cutting. The trail begins between the east and west loops descending to the stream. The photos were taken before the trail drops onto the flood plain of the Early Winters Creek, maybe 20 meters before the short set of stairs.
