Feels like being in the middle of the forest with the exception of a few scattered houses at the end of the trail. Not much to see in the way of views or wildflowers, but there is beautiful greenery and the sound of birds singing.

The hike is fairly brief and I walked it at a quick pace. It is rocky at times, narrows, and is switchback in the beginning. Overall, it’s a fairly easy trail for a woodsy hike.

Warning, there were a lot of bugs on the trail. Expect to do a fair amount of swatting.
