      Hiked the lower portion. Was in good shape except for the first creek crossing since the water is flowing fast and higher than normal.

       Fun trail. A few techy uphill sections to challenge yourself on. Nothing crazy steep, but the constant grade up to the natural springs provides for a fun RIP on the way down. Plenty of stuff to jump off! A mix of chunky and slalom, with the river constantly following right next to it.
