Ir was barely possible to see the trail. Overgrown plants all over the place and impossible to continue merely a few yards from the starting point. Disappointing since it could have been a really nice moderate short hike.

This was a neat little trail that is better done in moderate weather due to the lack of shade along the trail, but it is a quick hike. I would rate it as easy. I took the trail to the top to extend the length beyond the 2.7 miles, which made it more interesting. The best vistas are beyond the 4000ft mark along with the nicest trees. you get pretty good views of the Hurricane Deck, but the majority of the trails in the area do. There were some interesting rock formations, an abandoned mine, and a lot of healthy trees unaffected by bark beetles on the mountainside, which is a rare sight as of late. Note: there are a ton of deer ticks in the area, and we had to constantly check our dog. I highly recommend using tick repellent and treating your clothing with permethrin and then doing a full body inspection after your hike. On IG as @picbynathan
