Perfect day with mostly sunny skies and puffy white clouds floating by. I thought the first half mile or so was a bit bland, but then the meadows opened up, the trees began bending in the breeze, and the flowing creek came into view. Many little cascades and a fairly good current. Met up with a small boy scout troup at the spring head. As the saying goes, boys will be boys, and they seemed to be having a great time while also being respectful. It was my first time on this trail and overall it was pretty enjoyable. I suspect at some point I will be on it again.
