Nice out and back trail, as of Jan 20 2017 there is a slide at mile 4.2 that closes the trail. Seriously it is not safe to go past the log in the trail that says "end" on it. you slip you will end up in the river a long way down. If you are planning a through hike use the Slab Creek trail. Otherwise there are a couple of camping spots near the river, water is easy to come by and the trail was in good shape with a little mud and one or two blow-downs (expected in January). Trailhead parking is limited to a half dozen cars.
