Initial decent into the canyon was beautiful. You could see the autumn foliage following the creek and you get treated to a great scenic vista. Once in the canyon, the hiking is easy going till the first water crossing. Thanks to everyone who stacks rocks... in this hike they really helped a ton. The wide crossings at times makes it easy to lose the trail. I would recommend taking time to study the aerial shots of the hike to get the gist of where to seek the trail. The trail looks to be used regularly, but as you get further in, there is less wear and the brush is encroaching the trails; pants and long sleeves will save you a ton of scratches should you decide to push on to Parsons Springs. I was never able to identify by eye both Summers and Parsons Springs, but there was light flow from the creek. We followed this till the end of the water flow and headed back. Should you go the whole length, be prepared for about 6 rugged creek crossings.
