Great hike but the trail that connects to it to make a loop was full of debris and was not hikable. We had to turn around and go back the way we came :-(

This trail is more on the moderate categorization than easy. There were some steep inclines and rocky/rooty declines. Beautiful fall color and valley vistas. Very good 3.75 mile out and back hike. The loop trail was closed.

I parked in the gravel parking lot off Aska and started on the trail across the street. Maybe I'm out of shape, but I thought this hike was a little more challenging than the "easy" rating it has. I stopped to catch my breath a couple times on the long uphill stretches. It was an enjoyable hike, with views of mountains and a great view of Lake Blue Ridge at the top of the hike. Signage for this trail was a bit confusing, but it would be a challenge to get lost.

chose to do this trail as part of our full moon hikes. The night was bitter cold, but crisp and clear. We hiked the trail in its entirety without turning our headlamps on save for one time when we heard coyotes. Easy walk and a total different trail at night.
