This hike was gnarly to say the least starts off with a gradual climb pretty open to tight thick forest crazy up and down you down climb much but it’s so up and down it will get you. I am not one to complain about bugs but holy crap found a deer tick on my wife. Some guys were clearing the logs saw 9 guys on dirt bikes which honestly was nice they spooked any animals that I didn’t want to see and were very friendly. If you hike deff go early to beat some of the bugs. The directions to the trail from all trails is wrong take the right at the end of the directions not all way to it but at the sign. And you will see the trail head. The views were breathtaking when you get to the top. This made all the bugs the crazy small technical trail that would dramatically go up and down worth it. It was a kick to watch the guys on the dirt bikes because it was a crazy trail to walk on let alone ride on. Keetos to them. Three stars because the crazy bugs everywhere and the trail was never like a flat walkable trail. If I really don’t like someone this is the trail I would take them on haha.
