Great trail.. I recommend doing the first half to the top and return back the same way down.. We went all the way; down the smugglers road, but was more just a service road and nothing to special

Great trail- extremely scenic, from the bridges over Hunter Creek, to the woods, to the scenic overlooks at Smuggler Rd. Well worth it!
