Trail isn't clear about where you are and aren't supposed to go. We realized after a moment that we needed to go behind the large sign. However we then followed the trail behind that sign, which as it turns out, is the wrong way to go.

Still really beautiful, and the stuff we saw by going the wrong way was actually pretty cool too.

If you stick to the trail it's not that great but if you go off trail then it's a pretty good hike.
