We started at the Zealand Falls hut and were headed to Wiley Station House Road. The first 4 - 5 miles was flat, with very slight uphills. The last several miles were downhill, with some rocks. Overall the trail was very tame compared to sections of the Greenleaf, Twinway and Garfield Ridge trails.
Good hike steep sections!
