My watch showed 5 Miles from Orson Smith trail head up to where Trail of Eagle connects with Cherry Canyon trail. About 3600 ft gain. There is 1.5-2 mile section where trail is mostly overgrown. Could definitely use maintenance. With that said you can find the trail fine, just wear pants and maybe long sleeve shirt. Ran into one person the whole hike. Great views of the valley and pretty hiking once you get up into the trees.
