BRUTAL! Poorly marked in many areas. Some areas not marked at all. The 2 maps from ranger station don’t agree and are both wrong. Thank God for “All Trails” the GPS on the trail map saved me. Lots of horse traffic made trails very rough and i never found the designated campsites. Last 2 miles i had to do on the road because the trail disappeared into nothing. Road crossings need arrows, i walked 1/2 a mile multiple times to find where the trail picked up.
Beautiful scenery, lots of water sources, convenient location but lack of trail markings and inaccurate maps made for lots of bushwhacking & a very discouraging trip.
Closer to trail head nice markings and maps. This is definitely a good day/short hike area but 3-5 miles out it gets rough. I don’t think this trail is backpacked much.
