Took 8 Boy Scouts backpacking up to Jones Park. Perhaps a harder hike than I might have chosen for the maiden voyage of a bunch of 12 and 13 year olds, but they handled it really well with all their overnight gear. They slept really well! Happy Scoutmaster!
The stretch between the seventh bridge and Jones park was more taxing than the seven bridges portion. The scree field would have been treacherous in rain, dark, big wind, or winter precipitation and we would choose differently as a troop if those were in the forecast. Fine for regular hikers not recovering from too much Benadryl.
Getting to the place we actually intended to camp was a little tricky, and we didn't find it in the dark. We ended up making camp at the intersection of 622A and 677. Getting to Jones Park now involves a left (westbound) turn from 622A onto 677 then a right turn back onto a new 622A about 1/10th of a mile away. The previous 622A has been blocked (I guess as part of the native Greenback Cutthroat Trout protection).
Great trail. I'd bring my family up and do this hike again for sure.

Not marked well couldn't figure out if we were close or not nice hike until we got to the stairs which my friend can't do very well. I'll try again later

Hard trail to follow. Definitely has some great views but be ready to really search to stay on track and climb.
