if ascending this trail from the dam, you can make a quick detour on the trail that leads to the gap between sawteeth and gothics. It's only about half a mile on that trail to rainbow falls, and totally worth the detour. Just thought I would mention it! And yes, the west river trail is great I agree completely!
