Comments: Did this over 2 days. 19 mile trailhead to Imp campsite. then Imp to Carter-Moriah trailhead. Great Trail! Crystal clear day, blue skies for miles. Swung over to Mt. Hight, worth the detour. Don't skip this.....its worth the extra mile. Trail was quiet being a Friday. For the most part the trail is dry, few wet spots on day two from springs. Blow downs have been cleared. Trail has some great diversity from moss covered understory to alpine with butterflies galore! Expected this direction to be a bit more grueling than it felt. That being said, it was a roller coaster trail. Lots of ups and downs until you hit Moriah. Great trek for beginner backpackers looking for that overnight adventure. Consistent views for most of the trail which makes this one of my favorites!
