WOW. what a beautiful change of scenery from the typical west coast mountains. Had to do this trail last minute as our original plan went sideways after a forest fire caught. No regrets though! Spent 5 days in total on the trail, 4 nights. ALOT of up and down up and down across all the creeks. Very minimal trail maintenance done on this path, therefore walked through several bogs, stepped over broken stairs/ladders and opted for scrambling rather than using old rope handholds. End of July and weather was perfect. Ensure you have waterproof boots as there is mud everywhere. Not as much beach walking as expected, more inland dirt trails.
