Nice trail for the first half (going in). You can loop the whole trail as I did, however, the second half coming back is on a gravel road and through a clear cut logging area. Would suggest doing this trail as and in and back - as you are in a pretty forested area going in (note, we weren't able to find the small 'cut across' trail that loops just the bottom portion of this trail). Some pretty views on the first half, but probably wouldn't do this one again. Easy terrain throughout.

Was a good hefty hike, lots of ups and downs! Had a hard time finding the fissure, we found a tiny one...but yeah, worth going for a good hike in the woods.

This is a fairlly easy hike and it is really worth seeing the big fissure (crack) in the ground created the the earth moving it a really big and long crack!!!
