Fun trail. My only criticism is the trail markers. They aren’t very specific to which trail you’re on, so if I hadn’t been mapping my hike with the all trails app I probably would have wandered off onto a different trail by mistake, possibly lengthening my hike by several miles. This was the case with a family I came across on the trail. Fortunately I was able to help them but they were headed in the completely wrong direction when they were trying to get back to their vehicle. I think if the trail markers said specifically which trail they were for it would be helpful.
