    Summer Time Day Hike:
    Sun screen and insect repellant are must

    Complexity: Hard ( Because of distance and difference in terrain
    Terrain: Rocky and flatland - Couple of ascents and descends. Not terrible but rocks make it difficult to walk
    Trekking Pole: Since its long hike with rocks, better carry it
    Foot Wear: I have seen people running in trail runners but i would suggest good hiking boots to protect your toes.
    Scenic View: In 0.5 miles you will see a scenic spot. Sunrise mountain is on the way 5 miles in . Nothing fantastic after. You can even drive to sunrise mountain, They have build a huge building there.
    Trail Markers: Trail markers are easy to locate. Just follow the white trail
    Parking: Enough parking for 20 cars
    Permit: No fees
    Animal Encounter: I have seen lots of squirrels ( even though heard that there are lots bear sightings)
    Overall timing: I completed in 8.5 hours at 2.4 mph with lots of photo breaks. Start early to do day hike
    Streams : Couple of streams by 7/8th mile

    Summer Time Backpacking:
    Insect repellents are must.

    Complexity: Easy
    Terrain: Muddy and swamps all over the trail. Trail is not maintained properly so if it
    rains you might get into some serious mud. Its was really a challenge to walk on
    the trail after rain. As its too bushy its hard to find camping spots sometimes
    but lean-in come in handy.
    Trekking Pole: Not needed ( carry it if you want some support)
    Foot Wear: Keens will workout perfect.
    Scenic View: You will come across few spots near the lean-in / lakes.
    Water Stream: Lakes all the way, take some filtration units you are fine.
    Trail Markers: Trail markers are easy to locate.
    Parking: Almost parking available for 10 cars.
    Permit: Trail head signup, No fees

    I did this trail last week. Very good challenge. The inclination will push you to your limits. Here are few tips:

    Summer Time Hike:
    1. Better take some serious insect repellents. Mosquitoes will eat you. Honestly speaking am still itching.
    2. Caterpillars everywhere on the trees, watch out where and what you are touching
    3. Its too bushy in some places, I would suggest not to wear shorts.

    Complexity: Hard
    Terrain: Muddy and Rocky in some places. Mostly rocky
    Trekking Pole: Needed if you are not used to rocky climbs
    Foot Wear: Hiking shoe preferably ( Even though my Keen worked very well, but I had to watch out for the bugs, caterpillars and Eastern Newt )
    Scenic View: Lots of spots actually
    Water Stream: Few small streams but better carry your own water.
    Trail Markers: Mostly follow the blue trail, but at a point you have to take 1477 foot path for the loop.
