Made part of this trip July 21, 2018. From the road to the river is an easy 20 minute walk. Once at the river, however, is another story. Trees are downed trees everywhere, even some of the overhangs have collapsed. The trail, I believe, crosses the river back and forth. It's easier to walk in the river. Get you some cheap booties. The Quillan Cascades are very cool, even the Big Cascades. But if you go any further BEWARE! Even if there is/was a trail chances are that the pigs will have it all torn up. I could not find the trail out so I went down to Ship Rock then back up Thompson to the road.

One of my favorite hikes in Sipsey. Takes a little work but worth it.

This trail is no longer distinguishable. We lost track of the blaze tape due to all the overgrowth and downed trees. After about 300ft we turned back and went on the Thompson TH. Maybe in winter someone can clean up the trail and maybe blaze around the downed trees.
