The trail is beautiful. The views from the top and throughout the trail are really beautiful. Small warning, the hike goes over quite a few very boggy areas which during heavy rainfall might become seriously waterlogged. Especially problematic is the area where you've climbed 2/3 of the mountain and there's a flat/slight decline which was extremely waterlogged and difficult to cross after some very heavy rain. Overall, a stunning trail of you don't mind crossing a couple of bogs.
