Nice combo of a couple Greens w/ a short Blue to get my family (4yo, 6yo) thru 3ish miles in 3ish hours. Parked on Blue Ridge shoulder right at Asusti Trailhead. Beautiful, shaded trail with lots of creek/stream crossings. Clear water flowing into pools we would've sat in w/ more time & swimsuits. Sustained uphill on roots and rocks on way in w/ length made hike kinda long for the little kids, but they powered thru. Overlook view at end of route was awesome but it's off the route and takes some scrabbling up boulders to get ya there. Not marked on this map, but trees up the boulders are marked w/ blue hiker circles on way up to guide ya. Campground at end of route w/ fire pit looks awesome...would totally get a permit and stay overnight next time.
