Steep muddy and rocky and many roots but this describes most trails in this area of the park. You will see few people on a bright sunny day. I hiked today in rain and saw no one else but myself. There are plenty of roots and rocks to grab and pull your way up the trail. As you climb you will be walking in a stream part of the way. You will go up and then level off and then go up steeply again. Not a trail for everyone. No views today but on clear day you would have some but not much. I love the forest here because it is so alive with green.
