Your best views will be when leaves are off the trees. I walked in April, when the views of Canandaigua Lake, The West River and the hills beyond were at their best. This trail is not used much, so it is not packed down. There is a lot of oak leaf fall. A hiker can make the walk out and back, which makes the loop less strenuous. The upper part of the loop has some steep ascents and a steep descent. Parking is sparse and the parking is just off a very steep road.
