I hiked this a few years ago with my dad and it began my love for hiking. You are constantly hiking above and next to the creek which makes for a pleasant view the entire hike even though there is no much tree cover so bring sunscreen. Not a hard hike at all even with all the weight my dad and I brought along with my two uncles. We camped about halfway in a meadow that you really can't miss, I forget the name of it but it is where the Cayuse Creek joins Kelly Creek. Fishing near here is phenomenal and will probably stay that way because of its relative obscurity.
