Not as difficult as the description makes it sound. A little steep in a couple of areas, but more long and steadily uphill than anything. Pristine reservoirs at the top with native cutthroat trout up top. Beautiful meadows and stream crossings. You even pass an old cabin in ruins on the way. Might even see a bear. Hidden gem that is rarely hiked by anyone but locals.
