We picked a perfect day to hike this trail. The trail is well marked but you need to pay attention due to several intersecting trails. We did the trail in 4 hours and 15 minutes.We did not see another soul during the trip,

Backpacked through this in one day. My original intention was to use this as a testing ground to see how well I'd do with backpacking. For a first time hike with an extra 40lbs worth of backpack, I'd say it was difficult. Without the added weight I would guess that this would have been a fairly easy trail. There is a long portion of gravel road in the middle that does get a little boring, but for what I wanted to learn I'd say this was an excellent hike.
