Great Trail, views on top, fun and diverse forrest hiking below.
however about a mile of it (below the pct intersection) is covered with fallen trees, rendering it almost impassable. I only used it to descend, but oncoming hikers i met confirmed that it's impossible to get past them when going up. in case you want to do this trail, do it descending only and bring a certain degree of fitness - lots of pulling yourself up, stepping across and balancing on top of fallen trunks is required for that bit.
Try to access the top bits of the trial via zigzag canyon / pct or via zig zag mountain instead of hiking up the trail until the trees are cleared.

Overall, enjoyful tho. 4/5 bc i ripped my favorite hiking pants while ducking under the fallen trees.
