Pretty good overall, but the last 7-8 miles of the hike (which ends at George Manitou state park) was fairly uneventful with little to see. Mostly just a trail leading through the timber with very thick growth all around and a ton of mud to hike through!
I'm more of a waterfall or scenic overlook kinda guy! Definitely tired us out though, but with 275 more miles of the SHT to explore, I won't be back to this stretch of it. Saw nearly zero wildlife...a few chipmunks and squirrels round out the list!
