I backpacked this trail 3 times in a matter of a month and it never got easier. It was really demanding both ways. On the side of the burn where all of the trees are dead i was on a month trail crew. it was absolutely amazing. the trail is in great shape. It is a really nice trail to go on. Once you get to the junction at the bottom on the burn side that connects you to cache creek trail. once you go to that junction i recomend going up republic pass. That was an amazing view. There are 2 backcountry campsites located as you are heading torwards republic pass. both have a good water source nearby. If you head to lamar river there are another two campsites. The first one isnt that good. The second one is absolutly amazing. its pretty far off the trail that is easy to pass but if you keep an eye out and have a trail map you will be fine finding it. You can contact me if you have more questions
