this is a beautiful, low trafficked gem we just finished hiking. bring lots of water!! it never gets too steep, but this will take you a good 5-6 hours with only breaks for water. you'll cross the creek 15-20 times going all the way up and back. there's no real end goal or location, just pretty scenery throughout. we were the only two on the trail and didn't see any footprints suggesting anyone else had been there in a while. right as the hike starts, cross the river or you'll go up the wrong canyon that's more like rock climbing that abruptly ends!
