Started out at the parking lot at the bridge where Barbershop meets East Clear Creek which is also the intersection of FR 95 and FR 96.

Tons of water in the flowing creek. Things are brushy and the use trails are pretty much a choose your own adventure affair, but not too much scratchy stuff and deadfall. The only real noticeable fire damage along the rim is way up high at my turnaround point.

Didn't have to swim, but did so anyways.

No people parked at 8:30 AM, no people in the canyon except some hard working tik tok teenagers(?) 100 feet from the bridge at the end of my hike. Parking spots were mostly taken at 2 PM, but most of the action was down in East Clear Creek.
