I completed the trail to the Alpine 7 and back for an afternoon hike. The trail condition was in good but my choice of weather was not. It was rain/snowing on the way back down. Decent views of the swan valley, trail is mostly good for getting some where else. It crosses Peterson Creek right as it starts, no other water is available (provided you have a filter)
