I did the trail June 2018 as a trail run. The climb upto the top was tough. It was an overcast rainy day so the view was so-so, but on a normal day I imagine it would be awesome. The decent into Waterville was not fun. Again it was steep, with tons of unstable moss covered rocks. The last mile or so was overgrown with nettle, it made my legs feel like they were catching on fire. I made several stops in the adjacent stream to was my lower legs. If I had to do it again i would turn prior to the last descent into Waterville.
