We did it a few weeks ago and I would echo most of what was said here. In the Quality drops/mile of hiking category, its no where close to Vallecito IMO. But its a great workout, a beautiful remote valley, cool wildlife (Moose, Beaver, etc), and a super long shuttle! Maybe after a year I would do it again, but if it was flowing now I would probably do another run instead.
