This was a great and challenging hike, totally worth the trip. It is moderately challenging, so be prepared. Bring lots of water and if you have hiking poles, I recommend bringing them too. The ascent took me about 3 hrs (with breaks) and descent 2.5hrs. Definitely stop at the lodge for lunch. They have bagged lunches with unlimited coffee/hot chocolate refills and a place to fill up your water bottle. If you're in decent shape, this hike won't be as difficult for you as many people commented. It's challenging, but don't let that deter you. The views were spectacular!

I hiked up Anthony creek trail and Russel Field trail and somewhat overestimated the challenge of getting to the back country site. Overall it should take roughly 2 hours from the starting location, but it is an up hill climb the entire way - so pack lightly. The campsite itself is very minimal, offering bear cables and a basic pit to start a fire. That being said the winding creek and untouched forest offering a diversity of flora and fauna made the overnight trip worth it.
