Great trail but the mileage is closer to 20...just hiked it yesterday (7-27-19). Great trail in good condition but Cherry Creek is flowing almost waist deep and from the creek on, the mosquitos are out in force! Thank the late snow melt lol. Plenty of creeks to resupply water too. Very crowded up to Camp Lake but pretty clear after that!
