Don't lose the trail guide. Route finding is sometimes necessary over the ridge and crossing the creek. Very secluded, no one had signed the trail registers in over a month. Signs of cats on the ridge, but didn't see any. Bad year for rattlesnakes, watch the rocks in the creek and bushes on the ridge. We saw many. Great training hike for backpacking, and to sharpen some unused skills. Bring a lot of water! I gave it 4 stars because I like a good challenge. I made it into a 20 miler by mistake.
