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!
