The trail is very well maintained, as it is a section of the PCT. The trailhead is clearly marked, with a sign-in sheet and trail information visible. Overall, very little elevation changes, flat, and no obstacles along the way. The bridge offered nice view of the river, and offered a chance to cool off before continuing further. Many people turn around at the bridge, but you can absolutely continue. Today, the smoke was very thick from local fires, and I almost didn't do the hike, but decided to turn around at the bridge. Great one to take the dog along!

We got lost, we had to stopped and ask for directions. But it was our mistake forgot to print the directions, unfortunately there was no cell phone service.
The hike was beautiful, wildflowers still blooming in July, the river was flowing really nice and refreshing, views of the mountains were fabulous. The trail is well defined.
A fantastic Day hike. My husband, relatives and I will do this hike again.
