Overall the hike was beautiful, I loved the descent, but once we got to the river the trail was not very well kept and was the most challenging for me. We constantly had to climb over dead trees and we crossed the river countless times. I honestly looked forward to the climb to get away from the river.
The weather was great and we were in the shade for the majority of the trail and even though it was a warm day never felt overheated. I was tired by the end of the hike and think I should not have cycled 35 miles the day before.
