“A winding trail with small to medium hills that closely follows the river with lots of wildlife.”— Ryan McGovern
There are many marked campsites along the MRT and many more locations that will work just fine if you head off the trail into the forest. Water from the river is never really far away from this trail. The NCT side of the loop has few spots on the southern half of the loop that have water access and need to be planned accordingly.
The MRT has a few small waterfalls along the trail which can make for a great place to sleep if that sound does it for you. The terrain is a singletrack that is a bit rough at times but well maintained. It is not terribly uncommon to need to step over small trees or run through some mud at times.
