Most people say this (2000-2600) is a good level to see it for your first time. I know it is only five miles long...can you double dip it?...is the shuttle hard?... Other things in area running? Any beta on Slater Creek's A.C. slater falls, hike and huck? I'm coming from the front range...can you pull up a paco pad at the put-in/takeout??
