We hiked this trail with 4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs. The beginning of the trail was steep and lasted over a mile. Half the group is new to hiking and had to take a few breaks. The trail was mostly shale, covered in leaves making it extremely slipper. We had a few falls. We GPS the loop to be 3.01 miles. Overall this was a pretty easy hike, there was no view once you do get to the top.

We did have a hard time finding the trail head. It is marked with red trail markers and a sign for handicap access with an ATV.

Enjoyed this loop with a few senior friends and had a great time. Some areas are a bit steeper than others and some are washed out a bit but nothing too bad.
