Hiked this trail today. About 4-5 water crossings but all are rock hopping. Trail follows stream up to Green Knob. Some of the trail washed out because of massive rains the past few weeks but is passable. Was supposed to be able to see Price Lake from the Knob but we did not see it until reentering the forest and just had a glance. Some cattle (and plops) at the top of the Knob. Not a long trail and I would classify it low difficult just because of the washouts in the first mile.
