Backpacked in/out July1-4 The trail was ridiculously wet and muddy make sure to follow the pink caution tape detour around the flooded trail. A fun decline/incline depending on direction headed 20' of elevation in 8' during the detour to get back to trail. The trail was full of great sights and we had a good time in spite of the rain. Was a bit much for my wife but over all not that difficult. plenty of small waterfalls meadows and rock faces. Trail could definitely use some love and care maintenance and could be all the more enjoyable with better views of the ponds. The waterfall at Henderson lean to is a must.

Enjoy
