Three stars only because the trail is brutal. I did this trail to prepare for 14er climbs and it did just that. It had me asking why I like to torment myself?! However, the views at the top are superb. Getting to the TH was no problem. It's a VERY rocky trail making footing difficult at times. And as stated, part of the forest has a lot of downed trees to scramble around, over, or under. Stout Creek was flowing nicely and there were still patches of snow in shaded areas.
