As you ascend the trail from south to north the trail is initially doubletrack for the first half mile. After it becomes a singletrack, there will be two creek crossings. The first creek crossing is a little challenging to find the exact crossing and even more so in early season. The second has natural tree fall that makes for an easy crossing. There are no easily identifiable campsites until after the second creek crossing. Turret Meadows is the best of the early options, then there will be plenty on the upper benches, but not always right next to water if you are looking for big views.
The predominate use on the trail seems to be horse folks and the trail seems a little worse for the wear because of it, but overall the trail is in moderate shape.
