It was a beautiful, well maintained trail. AS you descend into the Duckabush River basin, the trail levels out nicely and provides a quiet stroll through the relatively young forest. All that can be heard is the chirping of birds and the sounds of rushing water.
Heading up Big Hump should not be taken lightly for beginner hikers. My hiking buddy had a little bit of a rough time up the switchbacks, but the view about 2/3 up to the top was spectacular.
This trail was worth the effort, and there is a nice camp at 5 mi. Would make a great stop on the way into the park, or a nice weekend stop before heading out and back to the hustle and bustle of civilization.
