    Very nice place. We walked it. Highly recommend the out and back extension at the extreme northwest. That was the highlight of the whole trip. Also, down at the southern out and back there is a parallel new path that is elevated in a very rich wildlife wetlands area. Highly recommend taking the standard path down, and then the new path back.

    Good hike especially as an add on to soapstone trail. Nice elevation on this one. This is a little short though, and has a marking problem.

    Marking problem : the extreme west end of the lollipop is mismarked. The yellow trail loops back left (turning south toward the power lines) but the fork isn’t that noticeable and then there is a stray yellow blaze if you continue right on what is supposed to be blue. You then lose markings but wind up at a creek crossing with no blazes , although clearly still on a trail.

    Hiked in dusting of snow with medium pack and micro spikes (not really needed but the description of this route was severe). Several frozen creek crossings. Very nice hike but this is NOT AT ALL DIFFICULT. This trail is easy to moderate at worst. Not sure where the description above came from. There have been changes to this trail over the years - perhaps this description was of an older version that was much more difficult.

    The purple blazes were well marked. Because the route was much easier than expected, I also took the advice of another post and added Bull Run trail which branches off left as a yellow blaze about half way down the Sandstone outbound leg. That leg was great but beware marking issues at extreme northwest end.
