the only reason I wouldn't rate it better is because of the heat, which is not typical. I like hiking along rivers and streams...EV has them. Water seemed a little low as well
This was my first 2-day backpacking trip and I can't talk this trail up enough. The images of the valley, glacier, clear blue river, enormous trees, the FOOT BRIDGE (yikes!). It's worth the hike. I kept thinking of lunges and squats the whole way to the valley - up hill. The way back was much quicker, even when sore. I suggest taking more than two days (13 miles a day with full packs is a lot for me) to do this hike. Ideally, I'll set up the tent in the valley and take a day or two to explore the glacier and surrounding areas. It's gorgeous.
