Fantastic day hike! A very well-maintained trail ending with a nice overlook of the river. Scenic with some mild elevation on changes. Lots of little streams with frogs and slugs and woodpeckers to watch. Not too much traffic. Apparently there are pack animals allowed on some parts of the trail so expect to see massive amount of poo in some spots. Despite that -it was a great hike.

This hike is long and there is some elevation gain, but it is super-mellow. If you are in shape, you can easily do this as a out-and-back overnighter, but if not, break up the trip with the campsites halfway. The other good news: this is one of the earliest hikes to open after the snow thaw. There are a few stream crossings (one of which needs some attention from the NPS because it's teetering on unsafe).
