The stream is dry and unremarkable otherwise. My son and I walked right past it, and the trail to that point is mildly beautiful but I wouldn't recommend it for views, maybe just for cardio. We proceeded another brutal 1.5 miles to the saddle of Mt. Olympus and THAT was phenomenal. Many hikers warned of several rattlesnakes on the path, but we didn't encounter any. 3 stars because the stream trail is super mediocre unless you really like those valley views. As far as nature, there isn't much to see here until you make it to the saddle or the summit.
