Lots of very noisy people in the river area (a circus) and lots of trash everywhere. I took off on the Blue trail for some solitude. For the most part I had it for myself. Towards the end I ran into several groups of hikers (family types), several of them lost and searching for a way back (blue/white connection point). I also took a wrong path, ended up trying to bushwack back to the right place, was denied and ended up back-tracking to the correct (not marked very well) trail. I had to wade knee deep water to cross the river so be prepared for some wet river crossings. Was pretty enjoyable anyway, but I would suggest a non-holiday weekday if you want some solitude.
Note: The gift shop always has some pretty inexpensive footprint castings for arouund $20-$30.
