Did a shorter version. Rocky and some scrambling but nothing crazy and lots of nature - turtles, snake, lizard and hawks. Great view of the reservoir.

View from the big rock is incredible. But the trail itself is overgrown with many cobwebs and an unbelievable amount of bugs. I have the feeling very few people go on this trail (we saw zero others). Also saw three very large black snakes which were too far away to identify but I think rat snakes. On top of that, there was a fair amount of poison ivy on this trail. Really need long socks and full coverage clothing. I probably would not do this one again, but it’s worth doing once for a very unique viewpoint.
