Summer Time Backpacking:
Insect repellents are must.

Complexity: Easy
Terrain: Muddy and swamps all over the trail. Trail is not maintained properly so if it
rains you might get into some serious mud. Its was really a challenge to walk on
the trail after rain. As its too bushy its hard to find camping spots sometimes
but lean-in come in handy.
Trekking Pole: Not needed ( carry it if you want some support)
Foot Wear: Keens will workout perfect.
Scenic View: You will come across few spots near the lean-in / lakes.
Water Stream: Lakes all the way, take some filtration units you are fine.
Trail Markers: Trail markers are easy to locate.
Parking: Almost parking available for 10 cars.
Permit: Trail head signup, No fees
