Really well marked, be aware if it’s rained recently you’re going to get wet shoes stepping across creeks. And yes, if you are pressed for time like I was, there is an unofficial trail down the second creek, so you can clip off the last loop of the trail if you need to. Although I was really glad not snake season quite yet!
Fyi, you do have to walk down Cliatt to get to the start of this trail.

Awesome views, several water crossings that allow dogs to drink and very well maintained...trail markers are very frequent and unmistakable, if you get lost on this trail, you don't need to be in the woods. Elevation gains aren't steep and long lasting, although I'd consider this a moderate trail because it is physically challenging and would not recommend for someone who is completely out of shape based on terrain alone.

I hike this trail with my parents and dogs and found it extremely fun although my parents were worn out by the end, do not hike this trail if you aren’t experienced or have problems with your knees or any other part of your leg.
