Fantastic views. Start on the upper direction to get a nice workout or the lower to be more paced. Plenty of nice stopping points including a place to lunch at the top. Nice dog hike too.

Trail was awesome, worth it for the views and smells of spring. Listed as a trail good for running; however, it was quite rocky and I often found myself rolling my ankle.
