We drove down a gravel road for 17 miles, only to come to a gate. The app said the trail head was a 5 minute walk from where we parked. We parked, walked up there, and got to a road with a sign that said the trail head was 1.75 miles down that road. It was also very creepy and extremely isolated.

Went downhill on 401, camped along the river and came up 402 the next day. It was hot and humid which added to the difficulty. We had large 50lb packs. These were moderate to difficult, but with the packs, solidly difficult. Great camping by the river, but please take your trash out with you. Many before have not.
