A group of 14 of us met on a Sunday morning and hiked the entire trail. The trail foundation was helpful in knowing where to get water and restroom breaks and we stopped at Wood Iron Grille and enjoyed lunch about 1/3 of the way in. The total trip took about 5 hours (including lunch). Lack of signage is a major issue and the only thing keeping me from giving this 5 stars. Out-of-towners would have no idea in some area where to go or how far they are from various landmarks.
