Wild rhododendrons were amazing a lot of the trail was just filled with them literally 15 to 20 feet tall and Trails made through them where it actually appeared like a tunnel. Thick vegetation made it hard to really see the views although we had several views of large boulders on the mountain side. The trail was very well-maintained with lots of views of the stream. You could hear it too many places . Majority of the trail was wide. The elevation zigzagged back and-forth to the top of the mountain ( first half your climbing up) you reach the top of the elevation and it is quite a climb. The descent was well-maintained with a series of steps built into the mountainside that were just amazing. The massive wood notched beams that cross the creek was a perfect spot to rest and get more photos
