Great trail. Well travled even in the cold weather. We went Jan 7, 2018. Moderate trail with hills and lots of roots. Great view from Graces Gap and lots of chances to take pictures and see historical mine entrances and other building remains. Port a pottys at entrance. Lots of people take their dogs walking here.
