Overall an amazing adventure ride.
We might have been the first ones to ride it this season (june 26).
Like others said, the trails is faint/non-existent in most places (with the exception of the flowy downhill single track that finishes off the last 5 miles).
I would highly recommend GPS. The trail was even marked on the "ViewRanger" GPS App I use.
Definitely heed to warnings about thunder storms. We had one barely miss us about halfway in that could have quickly turned the ride into a survival situation. (still got hit with 60 mph winds and hail).
Also at the time of riding, there were several snow and knee deep creek crossings.
All these factors just add to the fun, make sure you're prepared for the worse, stay safe and have fun!
