This trail was so exciting and crazy. It’s rated as moderate... that is NOT right. It’s hard for sure. The beginning is an insane scramble that was so much fun but required a lot of skill and attention. We actually turned back 3/4 of the way because we were concerned with running out of water, and the river at the bottom wasn’t the pristine blue we were hoping for. We have since learned this blue is extremely temperamental and you have to go when there’s been a solid ten days of sunny weather (no rain), otherwise it’s a muddy, chocolatey brown. Still an absolutely epic hike though. We’ll definitely try another time.
