Nice trail, there were lots and lots of people. We went memorial day weekend. Got rained on a lot. Nice places for campsites and lots of waterfalls. Definitely glad we went.

Great hike with beautiful views and fantastic waterfalls. Took 11 and 12 year olds on the hike and they had no problems with the hike. Saw some bear tracks in the mud. Hike was muddy in parts but well worth the mud. We were there the week of July 4th 2017.
Trail is well marked and pretty well maintained. Lots of great camping spots throughout the trails.
