Good physical challenge. Boring switchbacks mostly shaded. Trail is a continous steep grade all the way up the canyon. River is nice and there are blackberry bushes at the bottom. I went in july and drank all my 1.5l water and ran out about the last mi on a 90 degree day. There were a couple of creeks running on the way to get water. I would say wear bug spray and carry at least 3l of water or a backpacks straw to refill at the bottom.
