Did the pink trail; markings were hard to find; got lost for 30 minutes and had to backtrack. Rocky, climbed over fallen trees, some of the trail had lots of water flowing right on path. There is a rope midway through to help get you from the bottom to climb up to the next ledge ... But I'd do it again! Was a blast! 6 miles according to the trail map
