Great hike with views of the river. The trail is in good shape until Five Mile Camp with only a few blowdowns. After Five Mile Camp there are lots of blowdowns and the trail is more overgrown.

As others have noted, the switchbacks are brutal.

The switchbacks are brutal but the view is worth the work. The traffic was heavier than I expected it would be. All things considered, a beautiful trail.

Great exercise. Many switchbacks. Nice views. Mostly shaded. A pass is required to park at the trailhead.

I know it says 9.2 miles but by the time I was done with this one my Apple Watch had tracked me at 15 miles. Maybe I did some extra wandering around.
The river was beautiful.
