After heavy rains, the trail might be closed.
Bring sandals and be ready for mosquitos, as you'll likely be getting your feet wet on this trail. This area also has lots of bear sightings so be careful with your food.
Be sure to bring a hat and be ready for a number of switchbacks out in the open. Bushes are common through most of the trail until reaching the Tiltill Valley which is usually flooded.
Bears. Common brush. Mosquitoes.
