The trail (going counter-clockwise) was very quiet and peaceful. Even though it was 90 degrees when we started out, it was comfortable in the shade. There are basically no trail markings so it is easy to stray. Although there were a few miles of trail through a pretty but not particularly interesting forest, much of the trail is scenic and varied. A vigorous hike but I would have rated it as moderate. Only the length might have someone thinking it is hard. The climb covers about four and a half miles but is very steady - maybe a 7 degree slope - and on even track.

I think it’s a trail that’s more interesting for mountain biking. Very little views.
