Great soft path, perfect for dog paws. You walk along the side of a mountain range at about 10k feet, very little incline and the path is pretty wide 5mi — 4h 00m

Impossible to cross the east river by car (too deep). Declared mileage takes into account the first part right after the parking. Great views/colors! 10mi — 3h 40m

Road to trailhead blocked by beaver dam. So add a steep climb before reaching the trail.
