The trail was fantastic! Some decent climbing. There was a great deal to explore with some well situated campsites along the way. The water was rushing at a good clip.

Really lovely. We did the first 6 miles and back. About 1200 ft in elevation gain going in, with a few steep spots but many stretches of little hillocks and level ground. Mossy boulders, rapids and waterfalls along the way. A great rainy day hike.
