    Loved it. We went south on the NCT - covered most of the way with lots of switchbacks. No water so be sure to carry enough. Filled up at Red Bridge and camped by Aquila Creeks. Lots of great camp sites in the MRT. Plenty of creeks to fill up on water on the way north. Spectacular views of the river. Great trip.
