Report: The toughest park of my trip was the climb 2.5 miles of moderate grade then up and down the rest of the way however mostly up. The work is worth it is completely gorgous, take time to stop and look behind you ocien veiws, redwoods, peaks and river veiws all in one place! Hikes longer than the mileage. The trail is easy to follow to Terrace creek camp that is as far as I made it
