    The first time I went this route I was planning a single day presidential traverse, little did I know that was almost impossible due to the added mileage of the trail. but the second time I really took In the views of the trail and it is very nice. there are a lot of waterfall views and a pretty awesome bridge you get to cross right at the beginning of the Osgood Cutoff (3.5 miles)
