Here's my report, just got back last week, it was the best time of our lives and knocked off 4 of the 5 badges! Going to go up next year at the exact same time, it was perfect!How was the trip?! I've been thinking about trying to hit up that area next summer. Never been there before.
The small section on Mineral Creek (part of the Engineer Pass trail) just east of the Poughkeepsie gulch trailhead has one sketchy part. especially if you're coming down from Engineer summit.
