Great trail. Lots of camping spots along the river. Can't wait to come back once the weather warms up.

Amazing even in February! Lots of creek crossings and changes in terrain! Couldn't make the loop because we would have had to cross the raging river! Definitely will return.

Really rocky even in the flat sections. Lost the trail at the first real creek crossing but eventually found it again.

This is an outstanding backpack trail, beware high volume. Be sure to combat hi pH, as the water you'll be drinking is quite acidic... Some route finding/navigation skills are needed at lower elevation, especially when at crossings... no blazes and VERY FEW cairns to rely on. Do yourself a favor and bring a 24K topo.

It's an ideal outing when the weather cooperates.
