Beautiful and peaceful hike. Only saw one other group all day. Be warned that you must cross over the river after you’ve hiked about 3/4 mile. There is a sign for mining claim 29 - look across the river and you will see the trail continue. I would recommend long pants because there are many little plants that will scratch up your lower legs. Mostly shaded.... wear layers.
