Nice long trail. Trail was well marked and easy to follow. Only problem we encountered was the spiders and spider webs across the trail. Definitely pick up a stick to knock them down as you go. Coming back was better cuz all the spiders and webs were gone. Pants are a good idea too cuz some parts of the trail are over grown and some of the plants are spiked. Challenging trail for sure but worth it.
