Overall pretty good hike, I thought it was beautiful even though the view at the top wasn’t that good, but there are good ones on parts of the trail, definitely a hard one. Some noteworthy mentions: 1) I did this at the end of February and there was a lot of snow on the top, the locals said that it’s not as much as usual, but it was a substantial amount, there was some ice too. I managed alright, besides alot of slips, in worn out tennis shoes 2) after the water falls and you get to where there are two tunnels on either side, go right. A couple miles later when you get to the top of the ridge, turn right, I don’t know what the mountain to the left is. When your coming down and you’re on the first portion of road, when you get back on the trail there will be a sign but the words are faded out, turn left. 3) relatively maintained trail, follow the pink ribbons (I got lost at one point because I didn’t realize that was the marker and was climbing up a steep section of mountain, quite frightening to look straight down). The wood on some bridges is questionable and rotting, but the metal is alright.

This was a nice hike that was pretty taxing on the legs. The waterfalls at the base are beautiful but if you're hoping for great views from the top you will be disappointed as there really aren't any. Would love to go back and use the camp grounds at the bottom.
