Great trail! Had a 35lb pack and hiked in for a night off-trail. Hiked in on September 30. There were only a handful of hikers and many mountain bikers. All of the bikers were great and courteous. No complaints at all.

This stretch is unaffected by the burn and features some truly amazing rock formations. Relatively easy hike, so bring the whole family, or take advantage of Little Scraggy’s cliffside for some scrambling adventures.

What I really like about this stretch is stacked granite rock formations all along the way, both in the distance and immediately alongside the trail. It's very cool to see the variety as you go, and there are plenty of water stops and camping spots all the way through. Mountain biking is allowed here so heads up!
