The trail was great and the views were beautiful! It was a little muddy in places but if you wanted to avoid it, you can for the most part. Only disappointing part was we were supposed to camp in LC-7 but it was under water practically along with LC-6 so we ended up hiking back out. I’m sure other sites were just fine and it was just higher water than normal. Otherwise if your just hiking, it’s a really great trail and we would do it again!

Good trail. Some portions are a bit lackluster but it is nice walking along the river. Beware of the 3 river crossings. In early spring removing boots to ford them was required.
