Great hike, very challenging for the climb and the overall distance which for us was a little over 16 miles. We started early and finished in about 7 hours. Lots of streams to cross, two meadows and a beautiful peak that has interesting rock formations at the top. Got off trail two or three times, next time map and compass. Also watch for black bears.
Nice peaceful hike with all tree covered area and plenty of various wildflowers. We only went to the wilderness and back. We were told that the views are spectacular at the top of Signal Mountain, hope to make it there next time. It's a relaxing hike where most of it is along the river up to the wilderness. Most of the hike is easy, however there is a bridge (pictured) that was a little challenging crossing, but you can jump across if you feel adventurous.
