This is one of those trails / experiences that defies adequate description. We hiked it (well, perhaps "sloshed it" is a better description) on 12 July 2018 under very favorable conditions. We were, however, monitoring precipitation conditions in the region because of the threat (and genuine danger) of flash floods. Our trek took us just over 3-1/2 hours upstream including a side hike on the right first fork. Sincerely suggest you add this to your list of must-do hikes. It is fabulous and other worldly insofar as the canyon textures, dizzying heights, serenity and pure wonder. Honestly, I felt a childish awe that I haven't for many years. Go, keep an eye on conditions, wear the proper foot gear, secure a solid walking stick and, most of all, prepare to be wowed!!. That trail left me virtually speechless at times.
