A beautiful trail that steadily descends through 2nd-growth forest to a flat-bottom canyon (from which trails continue, if you feel like extending your hike). Quietness and solitude, but watch out for mountain bikers (and it's a very good biking trail to descend). Only drawback is that during the continuous steady descent, you are well aware that you'll be making a continuous, steady ascent for the return portion of your hike.
