Great hike, beautiful scenery, a scenic reward if you can make it to the Alpine Lake. First 6 km of this trail is moderate and a good trail other than some overgrown areas. Once you cross the bridge the trail becomes difficult. Narley roots, wetlands, and rock/boulder scrambling await. Last 1 km we encountered the steepest climb and traversed across snow to reach the end. I brought my 13 year old daughter on this her first backpack trip and she did great but it may have been a bit harsh for her first time. Also brought my dog and he only had trouble with navigating the boulders. He slept for 2 days afterward. The campsite can be beautiful but we encountered snow mid June and had to use a shovel that was left there to clear the only viable spot. Firewood is hard to come by up there so be prepared to scavenge. Definitely use hiking poles they are a must if carrying weight.
