Great hike up to the ridge line and back down the next day. Stayed at double springs gap shelter. Lots of springs and river crossings so you need waterproof boots! Stayed just above freezing fortunately.

Very cool bridge on this hike. It's very photogenic and just fun to cross. When we hiked this trail, we didn't see any other people. I don't know if that's normal, but we enjoyed the seclusion! Bug spray is recommend as you are pretty deep in the woods. I got bit a lot, but it was definitely worth it!
