Great trail. The section of the trail up to Gloria is well marked and maintained. The section between Gloria and Thurston was well marked, but the trail is new and not worn in so the dirt was quite loose on some steep sections. Watch for bears around the Gloria section. I saw two this summer and have heard many other reports of bears up there the last three years. They didn’t cause any trouble. Not many views along the ridge between Gloria and Thurston.
