Did the out and back today. Trail disappears about 2 miles in when the trail drops down to meet the creek for the first time. Stay to the right of the main creek and look behind a small camp clearing. The trail resumes right behind a large tree and is hard to find. Once found the rest of the trail is very easy to follow and I got right to the river camp. Trail is mostly exposed to full sun so bring sunscreen. Second half of the trail is very narrow with steep drops at times. Would not recommend trail running or small children. Camps looked great and I took a long swim. Totally worth it.
