Great trail, definitely a hike but well worth it for the view. Tried to do the sage loop on my way back down, couldn't find where the trail re entered the forest off the gravel road, ended up up just hiking back up.

Really enjoyed this trail. The hill had me huffing and puffing for a little bit, but it was all worth it when I reached the top. Great scenic views. Could actually just make out the 5/3 Bank Building in Lexington when I was up there. Other than the view, I really enjoyed the trip up and down, it was very quiet with nothing but insects, bird song, and the sound of my own foot steps being the only things I could hear. It was great to be alone with nature for a bit.
