This was the first backpacking trail I went on with my friend, and it was a great experience. Definitely more well travelled than some of the isolated places we've hiked to since, but I would still recommend it to anyone.

Would rate as easy. It’s really pretty! Great for first time backpackers or just an easy 1 nighter cuz sometimes you just gotta go drink some whiskey in the woods

Great backpacking with awesome views! The trail is pretty moderate and well marked. Once you drop into the valley there are plenty of backcountry camp sites to find. Bear hangs are tricky with so many snags, but doable. Did I mention it's beautiful? I'd also recommend continuing up the Rio Valdez. We looped over to Pecos Falls, passed Beatty's and finished up at Jack's Creek TH. So good!
