Hiked 3.2 miles in from the north end over July 4th weekend. Camping at Riley Creek Campground so another 1/2 mile to the trail head, so 7.4 miles total. Trail in excellent condition. Wide pathways along Riley Creek. No overgrowth to deal with. Trail heads upwards at just over mile number 2.0. Fairly steep grade, with switch-backs. Wouldn't say that the trail is hard like others.
