Recommend using this trail to hike to Sawtooth Lake when backpacking . Less foot traffic than the iron creek trailhead. The trail is all uphill with a few creek crossings, able to navigate the creeks via logs and rocks. There isn’t any shade so start early. Pretty buggy with mosquitos. Recommend trekking poles. The trail is overgrown at some sections but the path is still trackable.

Good trail conditions, not sure about the ‘difficult’ designation but it will test your endurance and it’s a full day- we didn’t realize the grade until we were coming down- beautiful scenery, 3 river crossings one had a bridge- we are 60-ish and navigated the logs fine. Our feet were grateful for the cold river at the bottom and the adjacent hot springs were very nice- go in the middle of the week for a better experience.
