Hiked the 1 mile closest to Sherando Lake Rec Area, USFS Campground early August. Fairly level. Sharp, small rocks for about half the hike made it a near ankle-twister. Narrow, single-file. Well-forested with a few ridge-top boulders. Views were mostly obscured by trees & mainly of the wooded, parallel ridges. Evidence of recent bear activity with numerous downed berry bush-trees. 2800-2900’.
