We walked here from the Willis Gulch trailhead. A good walk on easy trails which is very attractive with fall colours. The site is interesting with good interpretive signboards. Return via the Willis Creek Loop was worthwhile for additional views

Although this trail was longer than expected, and we didn't make it to the Interlaken House itself, it was a beautiful hike part of the way back.
