This trail is incredible in terms of scenery, challenge, and sheer isolation! If you're not in great shape, it is quite a challenge- by the third day, I was basically dreading every step. But the first two days made up for that. The hike up the ridgeline on the first day was totally cold and wet, but we found a great camping spot about 7 miles in, next to a big patch of snow, that we used to replenish our water for the next day. Water was extremely scarce, we found some pools up high on the second day. If you see these, DON'T PASS THEM BY. We didn't find anything deep enough to filter on the third day. We had four dogs with us, they LOVED the hike, but even our wolf/border collie was sore and depleted by the middle of the last day. They found enough wet ground to lap some water out of.
The cabin/shelter is okay for eating in, but I would recommend sleeping in your tent to stay warm... when we were there, the little stove wasn't properly vented and the cabin was drafty.
I would HIGHLY recommend this trail... Fun, beautiful, challenging!
We found a lost dog on our way down to our car at the end, and called the owner, who treated us all to prime rib at Two Rivers! I can't guarantee that this will happen to you.
