Started with black bear sighting 50 meters from parking lot-bells made it saunter off into woods. Overall, nice views of lowlands and water; very wet still in all low sections. Wild flowers just starting to bloom, high shrubs/plants on both sides of trail (above lowlands) made it a single file hike (if you’re not the lead dog the view doesn’t change - much). Saw very large golden eagle on way back - majestic. Certain I’d rate it a 5 once it’s a bit drier.
