Some highway noise as noted by others. Light foot traffic otherwise (once past the RC car track?!??) and nice trail. Not a ton of spectacular viewpoints, but a few nice ones. Overall a good day hike.

This hike should really be called the upper faulty trail. It is not marked as it is entitled here. I had a hard time finding the loop because of that. Otherwise it was a decent trail. The views are OK but there was some sort of industrial plant that you could see on most of the lookout areas. Not that much traffic on the trail though which is nice.

Beautiful forest trail. Nice loop for a quick hike, or option to choose another trail and keep going. Well maintained and marked.
