Fantastic loop for a weekend 2 night trip.
Leave Santiam Pass trailhead friday night, camp up at summit lake.
Next day grab a site at upper canyon creek meadows, ditch the pack, and explore the ridge and glacial tarn.
Hike out sunday
Not sure I'd recommend the bushwacking down from the ridge to Booth lake.
It's longer but the trail back from the meadows past Jack lake to Booth and Square lakes is really nice.
