This trail is beaut! Physically but not technically difficult, loads of birds about and some snow currently left after eagle bluffs which can be a little slippy in parts. Some trees with way markers have fallen so keep an eye on your map.

Great, fun, challenging hike with beautiful views near the top. After a couple of miles of steady but smooth uphill walking, this hike becomes a climb. My friend is a strong hiker, but a so so climber, and it took us over an hour to clamber over boulders, roots, and rocks for the 4th mile. It turned out to be totally worth it with stunning views a mile from the top. If you’re a strong climber, you’ll really enjoy this, but if your experience is limits to hiking, you might consider turning back.

The loose screed at the beginning was dangerous especially coming back down. Lots of exposed roots and some patches of mud. Overall good
