Not a bad trail. There are not many choices for water on the trail. Especially on the first 10 miles if hiking counter-clockwise. The first 7 miles are pretty tough, all uphill. After that it is not bad. There's also not many choices for good tent camping spots. If you have a hammock I suggest using that. Also, I suggest finding a good map online before going because they didn't have any maps when I went at the Trailhead.

Excellent trail...there is virtually no water supply with the exception of of a nasty pond on the last leg of the trail. Thanks to the Guardian water purifier I enjoyed 4 liters of the best tasting "pond scum" ever!!!
