Nice hike, moderately paced with great views at the top. Currently lots of logging trucks traveling fast on the main road to the trail, so be alert.

I like this hike primarily because it is close to home. The trail is very rocky in places. The climb is steady yet not extreme. Some of the areas on top are grown in so the view is obstructed. Wander around to find the spot with a view.
