Excellent trail in very good shape. Rock steps on the climb that starts at the sign for John Muir Wilderness a bit too tall (12"-16") making the climb harder than it needs to be. Plan for mosquitos and flys, surprising in number. There is an excellent established camp site on the west side of Post Corral Meadow (approx 6 miles from trail head) Set back among lodgepole pines it can only be accessed by rock hopping the creek and hiking along the edge of the meadow...very nice stopover point.
About 5 miles in you'll cross a puncheon bridge which was recently installed by the High Sierra Volunteer Trail Crew. For more information visit www.trailcrew.org
