This is a great trail for out and back over night. It has a lot of elevation gain with a amazing vista views. You will be out is the wild with this trail! We saw a cinnamon bear, several snakes, and lots of fresh elk scat! Beware of swarming pine mosquitoes and dog ticks around the water holes. We did have lots of water in spring creeks every several miles. I don't believe they will be running later in the summer. We did climb over 3900 feet in the the first 11 miles before turning around. The best camp ground is located at the Thirteenmile road crossing.

This is a really fun and taxing run. I've done it 3 times, saw some cows once. Lots of critters. Didn't see any snakes but saw plenty of evidence of large animals. Overall this is a great trail with a good range of views and conditions. There's water(a creek) at the trailhead so load up before you start.

I really enjoyed this hike, though not necessarily for reasons that others would. First, I was overjoyed to have the entire area to myself. I saw only one other party while I was out, which was exactly what I needed. Second, it was open when most of the trails i wanted to do are still snowed in. The terrain was pretty, but not spectacular. There were small streams every couple miles, but I wouldn't be surprised if they dried up later in the season. The trail was faint in places, but nothing horrible. Overall, a very pleasant overnight trip.
