First adventure for the year and boy was it memorable. We took a big group out and were stoked we didn't die! This loop is not for the faint hearted. Expect a super long walk rock hopping upstream for the majority of it. Expect to get to points along the stream where you are forced to jump in to cross over witht the water almost chest high. Expect to do some rock climbing. Expect to walk across tiny planks across a cliff face with only the roots of trees to hold on to or plummet down into the stream below.
You have been warned. It was super awesome though!
