Hiked up a creek to the bogs and back... so wet. No easy steps and had to turn back early due to the extra 1.75 miles that approach the trailhead. 7.3mi — 4h 29m

Might be slippery during storms or heavy rain when crossing over boulders. Very pretty but not totally dry after rain so some mud. 2.3mi
