A nice walk. While the trail is sometimes hard to descern, it is impossible to get lost. There are several good viewpoints on this trail, and plenty of 'bonus' peaks and valleys to check out.

A fun, relatively easy hike. It was a bit steep and rocky at times and the trails were sometimes hard to follow. The view at the State Line Overlook was amazing. The Ranger's Delight view was so-so.
