Decent hike. Did it with the kids (9,11), and we made it but they were pretty tired. Under 4 hour R/T with some hustle. Tons of trees down, and the trail squeezed between the tree falls. They had been cut up, but still everywhere.

The trail takes a lot of ups and downs, and does get your heart beating with some good vertical. Waterfall at the end, but if you keep going maybe a quarter mile you can see the rose lake cliffs.

We did take a wrong turn at the portage trail, as the main trail you hike jogs around a tree and you don’t see that without doing a little exploring. It was only a few feet, but disguised.
