Nice view, no crowd at all (hardly saw 4 others during the entire hike), good mix of flat and moderately steep climb.
Not many signs so bit confusing without all trail maps and parking is bit tricky if you come early in the morning as you will need to park inside the camp site.
This trail is actually 7 miles in and out to the flag. If you do all 11 miles you will end up at the beginning of the Rockhouse. There is no shade at all so try not to do it on a hot day. Nice incline for about 1.5 miles. Good work out and a nice view of the city and lake.
