Hiking along the creek most of the way. Crossed the creek multiple times on "timber" bridges. Elevation gain is gradual. Aspen trees are plentiful--will be gorgeous in September!!

Liked the trail, tree cover and cooler in the summer due to altitude. Billmurray loved it because he could drink from the creek whenever he wanted.
