It’s a pretty easy hike. The road is paved and heavily trafficked for the first couple of miles but relatively quiet afterwards.
I was struck by the scenery on the way in. Perhaps because of that I was a little disappointed with the campground. It isn’t bad but I did feel a little letdown after such a stunning walk-in. Oh, don’t count on the toilets being unlocked so you may want to bring a trowel if you’re planning on camping.
