Very good as long as you ignore all trail markers and use an app like this.

Great views for not that much work. Well marked, but lots of off shoots so downloading the map is a smart idea.

Not too muddy about two days after a snow. Little wind but otherwise very pleasant, especially down low. Road noise wasn’t too bad either.

This trail is a good, short hike, not too steep and no mud. There were no other people (4 days ago). Great view at the top.

HikingGreat!

The switchbacks were not too steep, and the trail takes you high enough to view incredible scenery. We did have a little trouble 2 miles in with the trail markings, so having the pro version was great to have the map downloaded.

Hiked the loop counter clockwise. Nice views from the crest. The lower portion along the road wasn’t very exciting otherwise a nice easy trail! Muddy in spots.

Beautiful! Glad I had the pro version of this app or would of gotten lost. Not super well marked with lots of intertwining of other trails.

Easy smooth trail. Did not see any wildlife. Watch your map - this area is a random spider web maze of named and informal trails and you can easily find yourself off course.

HikingGreat!

Using this app, we had no issues navigating and it was a great way to start the day. Saw a total of 2 families during the entire hike. Beautiful weather. No wildlife spotting, but clean, crisp air and a little exercise. Stopping for some pics, it took us 1 hour and 40 mins

Great little hike. Not too steep at all. Pretty quiet. I saw about maybe 8 people total and I did it "backwards" so probably ran into everyone on the trail at that time. Only saw one mountain biker. I'm not sure if I'd suggest doing it clockwise like I did. There is definitely more downhill that way and it's probably easier, but I felt like I was looking behind me for a lot of the views. Very pretty views of the tree covered mountains!
