This trail is incredible! You criss-cross the Targhee Creek every couple of miles when you're not parallel with it - which serves really well to refill your canteen. The last few miles are a killer, so plan on staying to recoup. I went up and back in a day, so it is possible - but not recommended! The views are amazing the water is cold and tasty and there are plenty of good places to stop for a spell near the creek.
