Took the east day hike trail to Camp number 3 the next day hike from 3 to 1 please note that the water at Camp one is a mile from Camp one so if you're coming from the trailhead to one don't walk past it if you're going the way we did it requires you to go an extra mile to get water and then return back to camp. my wife and I spent the weekend there and by far from Camp number one back to the trailhead is some of the toughest hiking we have ever done. love the challenge but it is not for the timid.

This trail is super difficult. We only made it about 1 mile out and realized it was out of our access. Lots of bugs even with bug spray so be prepared. The trail does not seem to be maintained well either.

Really liked this trail. Pretty views. Lots of things to do other than hike.

I just completed this hike last week but as a loop of ~25 miles, starting at the trailhead, following a trail just north of SR125 (traveling SE), crossing south over SR 125, and picking up the displayed trail there, finishing the loop at the trailhead. The trail is fantastic-- you cannot ask for a better groomed trail. It's simple to follow, well marked, with only a couple of trees downed over the trail in all those miles. There is no deluge of water runoff in the rain (& I started during a rainstorm) and the reason is simple in design- on each and every slope, every 50 feet or so, a backsloping cutout is made in the trail to force water runoff off the trail, so no deluge ever forms. This took an enormous amount of work to construct. But (big but), this is an athletically hard trail; easy trail technically; hard trail athletically. Take a water filter-- plenty of streams. Actually, camp 5 was 1/2 way for me and beautiful, on a ridge with great views. I loved this hike and will be going back for more.

Lots of up and down, very challenging if your not in good shape. If you have a dog, watch out for copperheads!!
