just did this trail. the first 2 miles was really challenging because it was steep and very humid, there was 4 Creek crossings which is fun but wear waterproof hiking boots. once you get past 2 miles it's less humid and more flat. but you need to prepare for tons of bugs, even using deet it wasn't enough. the path is very narrow and overgrown in many areas with many trees you have to climb over so be prepared to walk straight through bushes and branches and where long sleeves and pants. you also need to be very aware of ticks. even with deet I found 2 on me and my boyfriend and my dog had one even though she has medicine for it. overall I like this hike bc it was challenging and adventurous but it certainly can be exhausting with the spider webs, gnats, and ticks.
