Hiked this last weekend and had a great time! It was a little chilly (at least at night) this time of year. We started with the Manistee Trail. I think this route might be a little more strenuous - more uphill on the NCT this way.
Also, this hike is a 23-mile loop. Not sure why it says 29.6. The GPS might be a little goofy.
The trail starts at a roads end. I actually didn't follow the trail southward and instead ventured northward . The main road has many little side ventures leading to streams on both sides of the road (starts on left then is on right). There are some more technical paths to take but I was just feeling the place out. Even came to a bee honey keep back in. Was a fun experience which yielded many fantastic shots
Waterfalls everywhere!! Water running hard from recent rains. Great trail. Lots to see-flowers, butterflies, beautiful mushrooms, and too many waterfalls to count!! Indian Flats Falls was really nice with strong flow. Great spot for lunch!! Took us 4 hours and 15 minutes round trip not counting stop at Falls. Don't miss this one!!
