A great deal of this trail is boring and cannot be described as difficult at all, unless the difficulty is in tolerating the jeep trail and the "nothing interesting to see." Only after about 3 miles have passed on the way out, the forest opens up with older growth, a comfortable spacious place. The last mile is rather rocky, technical hiking with steep ups and downs, which almost makes it worth walking those first 3 miles, almost. I would like to go to that area again but will not take this trail to get there. L
