Great workout in the woods. Approximately 2 hours. At some locations, all you could hear was the forest and the gurgling stream. Therapeutic!

Great little hike. We stepped off around 10:30am on a beautiful, late summer day and were surprised by how few others we passed. The trail offers a good mix of scenery, elevation gains followed by stretches of flat trail.. we even came across a herd of cattle near the end. Not sure where we lost the extra .5mi (description mentions 4.4mi, we did 3.9) as I don't think we took any shortcuts, but it didn't matter. We were content at the end :)
