My husband and I hiked this trail this past weekend. Trail was a litle difficult at times, but I work at a desk all week so I'm not in shape by any means. We went counter clockwise. It was fun for a weekend hike and had some really pretty views. Would recommend the scenic route for the best views and place to camp. Also to go clockwise so you can camp on the scenic part and wake up with that view.
Great hike. My husband, myself and our 2 older labs did the whole trail over the weekend. There were very few people on the trail that day. No switch backs. Nice elevation changes. Trail was well marked for the most part. Had to cross a few streams. Be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks. We walked to the trail head from our camp and then had to walk back when we were finished. My pedometer said we did a total of 16.3 miles in about 5.5 hours. The dogs definitely slowed us down. We are already planning on coming back to do this hike again before it gets too hot.
was a great trail to spend some time hiking with friends. had a few rocks and things that had to be climbed, but overall was a gradual step up until the upper part. we ended up going down a path at the end that was next to a river, and it ended up being much more difficult but a lot of fun. took around 30 min to get back, and around 1.5 hours going up with us stopping at every nice view.
As many others have said, the trail is not marked very well, so bring a map and some luck. When I did the trail in early fall, we encountered no water the entire way though, so pack plenty. As far as scenery, there are more scenic trails a few hours away. However, this trail is good if you are looking for a loop you can do in 1.5 days or a single day if you start early.
