Brickett House to West Royce Summit. Difficult it is but the scenery is gorgeous. There are multiple waterfalls and a pseudo canyon of the mad river that needs to be crossed 3 times. Wet feet are a distinct possibility. Definitely need great hiking footwear and poles would be advised as it is a rainforest and every rock on the trail is wet and has moss/algae. Loved all of it and I will do it again soon.

Well, have done the East Royce portion of this trail from Rt.113 at the top of Evans Notch - a few times - and it's a great hike: short enough for young kids, waterfall, stream, lots of forest changes, open summit with good views. And! It's quiet....
