Hiked on 6/8/2013 by accessing the trailhead via road 6205 near Prospect. I would consider this hike to be moderate to difficult. There is a warning that the trail is impassible because of a flood that washed away part of the trail. We made our way through 4 or 5 gullys about 10-15 feet deep caused by this flood by scaling down and up rocks and uprooted trees. We were able to see where the trail started back up on the other side of the gullys because someone had already been through and placed red tape where the trail continued. Sometimes there was a stack of rocks with the red tape to show the way. We just had to choose what we felt was the best and safest way down and up. There were also some very small streams to cross and fallen trees to go over or hike up off the trail then back down. We also encountered a few patches of snow, but they did not hide the trail. All of this was worth it because of the beautiful views of the small waterfalls and Lower and Upper Red Blanket Falls and Stuart Falls. According to the GPS tracking, this hike ended up being 12.24 miles.
