This trail is a hidden gem. It has received some bad press due to rain, but let me tell you, this hike is simply a beautiful way to spend a day, or an entire weekend. The trail is maintained in topnotch condition, and there are so many places to sit by the river, or camp. This has become one of my favorite places for a day hike! I keep returning for the views of old growth, huge ferns, mossy trees, and the gorgeous river. Stress just falls off me on this beautiful, easy hike. Enjoy!
I guided a group along this scenic but soggy trail for six days in march 2002, I would have to say this was one of the coldest and wettest trips I have ever worked, It rained every day and with that rain the trails became more like small creeks. The trail had numerous washed out sections and lots of fallen trees. I'm also disapointed to tell you the fishing was mediocre at best. I would recomend this trail only during the rare west end droughts which might happen for a weekend in august. HA!
