This is a great trail to run/hike/bike. Streams are high right now, so, beware of any crossings and take extreme caution with children.

If you are hiking or running, I suggest earlier in the morning and keep your ears open for Mtn. Bikers which thicken as the day goes on. There are a few switchbacks and technical sections for bikers where it's more difficult to share the moderately trafficked trail, so it's best to be prepared for that in advance.

Lots of sporadic shade and near the creek the entire route. Beautiful.

Great hike with most of the trail along a gushing creek. A patch or two of snow near the top where it meets the meadow. The creek is too strong to pass at the top and make a loop. We came back the way we came and enjoyed it more coming down.
