It's a lot of fun. Not nearly as steep as some reviews imply, it's a 1200' foot drop over 3.5 miles, 7 miles round trip. I think if you keep following the official trail along the river it's more like 4.5 each way. The views are great and the swimming hole is very, very nice, as are many along the American North Fork. I'm really starting to like the foothills.
Note the thick brow-ridge, the idiotic grin, and the death-grip on the beverage. You can email this handsome devil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
