Great hike with an awesome view of Pikes as a reward. Multiple cairns along the way once you get past Seven Bridges. Watch out for fallen trees once you are heading north past SB; they cover parts of the trail. Good technique is to always have the creek no more than 20 meters away from you, and that should help if you think you're off trail.
