This was a solid hike; you will get a workout ... the views at the top are amazing.

BUT while the trail here is listed as a loop; at the top where the loop goes back down ... and yes there is a trail there blazed as BLUE ... it is officially CLOSED and not maintained at all. Of course we didn’t see this until we had FINALLY finished the trail from the top down and there is a closed sign at the bottom. That section was BAD ... and while there was a trail there are one point it is extremely
Overgrown ... use at your own risk.

Otherwise this hike is awesome.
