Wow! Magical. We hiked it clockwise... But....
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIKING IT **COUNTERCLOCKWISE*** If you are starting at the dam, trailhead or kayak kiosk

I was rather tired by the time we got to the gems on the south side of the trail that I could not enjoy them as much if I would have been not as tired. You will thank me. I had read a suggestion to hike it counter clockwise but didn't do it.

Take some trunks. Swim.

Can be muddy in places. Recommend wearing hiking boots.
