Great day hike! My Garmin did read 8 miles and not the 6.6 in the description. Definitely worth the extra though. We came to escape the heat of the valley in June and was able to enjoy the meadows, streams, and the lookout at the 4 mile marker. The trail was well maintained and direction markers easy to understand. Bugs were not a problem as we used repellent before starting. We did encounter a bear, but it was a ways away off the trail as we came through. Views were spectacular and overall a great hike!
