Great hike with some elevation going up and down, a bit rocky at times, cool looking tree roots on the way as well.

The first mile of this trail was busy on a Sunday in June. Long stretches of the trail were very rocky. We enjoyed the hike overall.

Very muddy since it rained last night. Good walk. Not much of a ascent or descent after the initial 1 mile.

Slightly more advanced than moderate. Minimal climbing involved. Muddy at the very beginning and end. I would recommend this trail for hiking.

Middle of Dec hike. Some parts were muddy, and it was easy to find yourself off track if you weren't paying attention. Scenery was nice, and it does get rocky on certain paths. There's some gradual elevation depending on which side you start from. As the day continues more people started to pass by, but overall a nice hike.
