Just returned from a 4 day hike through this wilderness. Started at Big Log Gulch,easy hike to Left Fork,ticks galore,nice steam of clear water,good camping. Left Fork to Keepout Gulch steep but good trail. Keepout to Kennedy Spring very wet with two feet snow along creek,elev 6500,no dry place to camp,breathtaking views, connects with Meriwether Canyon Trail.Next day couldn't continue loop around mountain (no name)2 feet of snow, couldn't see trail,very steep slope.Went off trail straight over mountain using dry land between snow drifts,very steep,west side of mountain melted off, traversed slope to connect with Meriwether Canyon Trail,lots of winter erosion on trail no one had hiked through yet, lost the trail a few times, mostly all downhill to creek,good water at spring and clear runoff. Ten creek crossings,easy,trail well defined down to Meriwether Picnic Area,boats only access, nice picnic facility,ranger station closed,good view of Gates of the Mountains,beautiful Missouri River.Hiked upriver on River Trail to Coulter Campground,boat access only,nice facility,bear precautions,food safeboxes,lots of fishing boats,spent the night,saw notice next day "No Camping" - ops.Hiked upriver to cut across trail to Grant Gulch,river trail very easy,trail to top of Grant very steep,lost the trail few times,no water,spectacular view of river and cliffs,view from top of Grant Gulch south spectaclar,straight shot down through grassy bowl to road leading back to Big Log Trailhead. This trail would be easier in May or June with no snow and after trail maintenance. The views are very memorable,lots of wildlife - take your camera. I hiked for about 23 hours,about 30 map miles, up and down? I lost about an hour on wrong trail to Sawtooth mountain. There are a lot of great trails in this wilderness. Parts of this route are very steep, recommend good physical condition.
