A good one to do on a hot day. Did this hike in early August 2018. It was 30-plus degrees out, but the trail was shaded throughout. The 600m elevation gain is steady and gradual. The only steep section is the last 5 minutes to the lookout (see photo). Better signage is needed at first to get you onto the right trail from the road. After that, signage (“new route”) is adequate. I wore trail runners which easily handled the first half (rocky, zoom in on the photo) and the second (beautiful soft springy trail). We did this at a consistent moderate pace as an out-and-back in 4:20 excluding a break at the view, rather than looping to include Sawblade Falls. It would make a great run as well. Saw nobody else on the trail (a Tuesday). The creeks and falls were very low, but enough for the dog to have a drink.
