Accessed trail from Rt 17 south - overshot the trailhead because it’s not marked on the southbound side of the road. Once I got on the trail it was beautifully marked with blue blazes every hundred feet or so. Had to circumvent some blowdown around the top. Otherwise easy to navigate and beautiful views. Good cardio workout with all the ups and downs.
