I would give it more than 4 but not quite 5.

After 7 weeks of trying, finally made the loop.

Peaceful run, sounds of water.

I did this trail a few weeks back. Nice hike takes a few hours up and a few more down. has a waterfall at the end that's really nice you can sit and hang out. Can get recently steep and you do have to cross a few rivers so be ready for that the water when I was there was basically rapids in some parts and could easily sweep someone or an animal even away if you fell in and yes it is deep the higher you go. We ran out of water half way up not thinking it through so bring a backpack with plenty of it. Eventually you hit forest and its pretty cool temperature from there on out. Please wear proper shoes or hiking boots not running shoes you will hurt your feet on the sharp/and or loose rock on the trail and it gets very narrow at some points the further you go so have respect and let others pass by when you see them its safer and faster for everyone.

I have done this trail several times. Do not confuse this with hunter creek trail. No water along the way. Note, you are hiking on a loose gravel dirt road the entire way. Wear good shoes and bring plenty of water. Also don't be disappointed when you get to the "lake", it is actually a marsh and the headwaters to hunter creek. Still for some reason I love this journey. Very active bear country as well.

beautiful trail. peaceful. I did it with baby on my back, relatively easy. crossing the water without getting wet, was the most challenging part.

It was a great trail. We were warned by some people walking out that they saw a bear. Just keep a look out. We did not see it.
