We had a good time hiking/running this trail but be prepared for some pretty rocky sections (more often than not). Pretty good ups and downs. We didn’t see any other folks but it was the day the forest reopened after being closed for a couple of weeks. ATV’s are allowed but I wouldn’t recommend due to extremely uneven spots making it difficult to ride safely.

Hiked in only 2 miles, up to where you get to the fork in the trail for the beginning of the loop. It took me 1 hr 45min to get to that point. It’s a steady ascent with several places of rocky, uneven terrain. Easy to roll an ankle if you’re not careful. Keep your eye out for the view because you might miss it if you don’t!

Very nice trail, although I only had time to do the first 1.5 miles of it. Nice views, but there were a lot of bugs on the trail. Really enjoyed the hike.
