    Backpacked this trail 6/24 to 6/25. Had nice information board at trail parking lot, which included a hiker sign in. The trail has a 1.5 mile hike to the actual loop, this is something to take note of. At about a half mile in there is a split in the trail, this is not the loop. Stay left at this intersection to save yourself 45 mins of extra hiking towards a dead end. The actual loop will have a wooden sign, this is where you can decide to go left or right on the loop. The trail was beautiful, acres of high canopy forest, with the forest floor covered in ferns. Markers are faded but consistently marked along the trail. Recent storms have knocked down several trees over portions of the path, look for hikers markings on trees (carved arrows, shoelaces) these will help you find the trail after getting around the downed trees. 3 or 4 streams that have to be crossed (only fell in once). About 10 cars in parking lot and only interacted with 3 pairs of hikers which was nice. Only reason rated 4/5 stars was due to the large amounts of stinging nettle that lines much of the southeast portion of the loop and the unmarked split leading to the dead end. Only about 7 to 8 total hours of hiking between the two days. Overall had a great time in a really cool place.

    Great trail. Beautiful scenery throughout the entire trail with several small waterfalls, large valleys and rivers and creeks. The trail is mostly shaded with thick tree cover. Very limited cell reception so don't count on using phones over the course of the hike. The trail has relatively few flat portions with the majority of the trail featuring steep inclines and declines. I would suggest bringing hiking boots rather than shoes, several portions of the trail had 3 to 4 inches of mud covering the trail. There are several areas to dip your feet in the water but I wouldn't count on swimming, currents were very quick and could lead to very dangerous swimming conditions. I would rate this trail moderate to difficult depending upon the amount of mud on the trail. The trail is well maintained and well marked throughout. Took about 7 hours to complete the out and back with some cramping and muddy conditions.

    Very muddy but this was expected. Gets difficult to follow when you come out by the small stream after walking on the overgrown concrete path, just be sure so stay along the stream following the blue taped trees. Loved the hike. Took about 4.5 hours in steady rain with lots of mud and water.
