Trail is a little overgrown in places, footing a little treacherous in a couple of places and not well marked in one place, but offers great views of the mountains, creek and some old mining equipment. Didn’t hike the whole trail, just in about 1.3 miles and then back out.

I really liked this trail, steady grades, by the river, quiet, flowers, and i saw a huge bear 2 hours in..... and then quickly opted to turn around.

Disappointing. This trail is in bad shape. Several washouts in the first 1.5 miles. view at the top is completely lost in the trees. I went off trail and found a nice overlook to the west.

We didn't do the whole trail, but walked part of it after taking the mining tour. Beautiful scenery. Check it out!
