I backpacked this on 4/23-4/26. The only good part of it all was the destination the river and the huge mountain is a great site to see while camping, but the trail was harsh during that time of year or all of summer, because the trail had barely any shade there are only few sections of high trees. Bring sunscreen! It is also not a easy trail i would rate this atleast moderate, because it is actually around 11 miles not 7, if you are planning to backpack and camp near the river.

Great hike! The road gets a little rough towards the end, I suggest a 4x4. We made it in my Subaru Forester, but there were some dicey areas when it came to having enough clearance.
Beautiful views along the way and at the end of the hike! Great place to have a picnic by the river before hiking back out & love this is a dog friendly hike :)

Great trail, when you arrive you are partially up the trail (based off following the directions off AllTrails) and you turn right at the trail crossing to get to the gorge. The road is a little rough at the end, I suggest a 4x4. I made it in my Subaru Forester but areas got a little dicey due to lack of clearance. Beautiful view at the end of the hike, great place to have a picnic by the river before heading back out, and love that it is dog friendly (just check for ticks when leaving) :)

Great views of the valley all along the trail. The gorge itself is beautiful and a great place to swim if you can manage to walk down the river into it. There are some spots to set up camp near the river bank for an overnighter. This trail has little shade and not much breeze along it so a hot summer day can be brutal
