If you are looking for a well spent day of hiking. This is a good one. Started at parking lot on 89 where th starts and the ba mountain bikers start then end up. It is a nice well used trail with many different terrains. When you hike this to the lookout tower it is rewarding. I did take the access road on the way back from the large clearing on the top end, then to Mills Peak Road then back to original trail head on 89. Only to save on the feet. This is a long hike and took roughly 6 hours hiking at a fast steady pace. Bicycling this trail is definitely the way to go. Guess a trail bike purchase is soon in my future. Since I could see the downhill thrill of this trail.
