Great trail, the first 1/2 mile on the Catwalks is neat, then definitely go down the stairs at the end of the Catwalks and find your way upstream to a couple little waterfalls and swimming holes. You can walk upstream or find the trails on either side of the creek. It’s cool to see the effects of the flood and the burnt trees that it carried downstream. We hiked 2 1/2ish miles upstream to where the whitewater trail intersects. There was some climbing, but pretty easy-moderate over all. Not too crowded and there was minimal litter, which we picked up of course. We picked up only 3 pieces of trash the whole hike.
