Was a really cool quicker hike that still really gets you winded. Decent views, cool topography.

Absolutely beautiful trail with amazing views! I am not sure I agree 100% with the kid friendly aspect, as there are some cliff faces and sheer drops you have to climb as well as go down. Perhaps tweens and up, not too sure about younger though. My dog was able to do this with ease though haha!

Lovely shortish loop. Some steep sections. I agree with another reviewer that the blue blazes were a bit sparse in sections. We had to backtrack once or twice to regain the trail.
