My backpacking buddy and I completed this hike June 17, 2018. I had hiked there years ago and the experience was the same. Wonderful! There are some uphills and downs so I guess the moderate rating is on the mark. we hiked into the Morrison camping area for the night on the 16th and hiked out the next day. I rated this as 4 stars because on the way out we skirted much area that had been logged out and the trail was very tight with brush and small growth. These tight areas were made even more difficult because of the constant rain on the way out. trail maintenance is lacking in certain areas but over all it was a fun time.
