Great hike. River is running high and fast right now. If I was solo, I would have turned back rather than cross it repeatedly. The rest of the hike was pleasant and unremarkable. Brutus Bushwhack was a much easier way to get off the mountain and it was dry. The slide was great for going up and getting a view.
