Enjoyed a great hike with our dog today! Started the trail about 9:45am and didn’t see many others on our way up. It was super windy on the saddle so we didn’t commit to seeing the trail’s end point on the ridge but tucked into a rock cropping to snack and admire the views. Busier on our way down at noon - didn’t get to see any animals since there were many people, including some hunters, on the trail. Highly recommend this hike - it’s relatively steep on the way up but there’s great shade as you’re going thru the forest most of the way. Views for the last section are totally worth it!
