I love this trail. It's a little difficult to find the trailhead but easy once you are on it. There is one small steep part where there are ropes to help you get up through large tree roots and it was challenging with our little terrier as he had to be lifted in a couple of spots but our more lanky lab cross who is only 18lb made it through no problem. Amazing views on a clear day. This is great if you are looking for a short but challenging local hike to get up and out relatively fast and a great alternative to Finalyson if you want to avoid the crowds because its a bit of a hidden gem.
