The scenery and solitude were brilliant! Be aware that the trailhead off highway 33 was easy to miss based on the "getting there" directions. Be sure to follow the mile markers and stop on the pull-off just past mile marker 28.07. The trail itself was pretty nice, but overgrown in many areas. I chose to turn back after about 2-2.5 miles to save my skin.
