Very nice well maintained trail, follows a creek most of the way. Not really a loop just the last section has a small loop with about a mile of hiking on a back road. We cut it short just because we don't like walking on roads. I would rate this trail as more moderate then easy, quite a few ups and downs and fairly steep hike back up to the top of hickory nut mountain.

Nice, well maintained trail. We only did about half of it because we did another hike before this one. You’re in the trees for most of it but it was easy and nice.

So our We were looking for a different trail and stumbled on this one. It starts downhill and is not a loop so there was some fairly steep uphill on the last mile or so. Really nice trail in the trees a couple small water crossings and few people.

The trail was well maintained and the trees were beautiful. Although we didn't get to the Vista we were happy. The trail had 3 water crossings.

lots of spiderweb and spiders. We did not reach the loop and turned around because of an incoming rainstorm
