Crowded but the payoff at the top was well worth it.
Hiked this the day after the "big" wind storm. We got about 1/4 mile past prospect and ran into a number of large trees uprooted and across the trail. Climbed over a few then decided to turn back. Only saw a handful of other people on the trail. It's a nice steady hike on a smooth trail.
This was my first hike in years. The payoff at the top was brief taking.
Lots of great things about this trail: it was easy to find, there's a lake at the bottom where my dog swam, and nice views from the top. There are no difficult spots (climbing up or over anything nor walking close to a ledge) but it's easy to make the trail harder and a better workout by going quickly during the climb. There were lots of people and lots of dogs, probably 80% off leash. After only two miles, you've got a great view from the top!
