Best campground ever?? No yokels in the campground, but they did fix my flat on the way up. Why is the ridge not the standard? Pretty dang easy and solid, seems irresponsible to put the star on the more environmentally damaging and dangerous option just because its easier for like 2 months of the summer season. Anywho, this trail is really nice from Mile 2/12000' upwards. The second mile is probably the worst I've ever seen on a standard though. Half the trails are running streams through sensitive marshes and the other half is murderous steep terrain around several fallen logs. Both of which have several points to lose the trail, e.i. a bit tricky in the dark. The damage done by these multiple trails is only getting worse, this trail needs work stat! Funny there's a sign near the start thanking someone for the original rehab done...
