Upper portions of the trail havent been cleared of trees felled after the 2008 fire. Lots of obstacles. Not the grand and mysterious an entrance to the canyon as Mumford Bar. Steep cutbacks. Kind of blunt descent.

Just did this as a 3 day backpacking trip since we couldn't reach our original destination Sailor Flat Trail due to snow. Trail starts nice and clear but very steep after a mile or so quickly devolves into a bushwhack through poison oak, blackberries and other head high brush. This trail as well as the American River Trail that connects the 3 major tails into this canyon are BADLY overgrown/impassable which is a shame because this is such a beautiful river that should be enjoyed.
