An awesome trail! From Arroyo Seco Gorge parking to the spacious Willow Springs camp is about 6.5 miles. Roughly 15 very easy river crossings (5-8ft wide creek, really). A bit muddy in a few spots. Beautiful narrow canyon with steep sides, mostly uphill the whole way but not crazy steep. Very scenic and quiet. Several camp options for trekking further and a few along the way if you want a closer destination. If you go further, fill up water at Willow Springs, I went exploring a couple miles past and it goes up over a pass far from the river.
