Really enjoyed the scenery on this one. It was great to be on a trail that didn't have a lot of traffic. it was slightly grown over but not hard to follow. I would not however rate it as easy. The hike out was a monster with all of the elevation being at the beginning/end. Follows a stream the whole way and even found a spot to jump in. Stumbled on a mama bear and cub but once I started clapping at them they took off in a hurry.
Overall nice hike but the hike out really busted my butt.
