Took my dog on a Friday morning, thinking it is 4.9 Miles. Our hike was closer to six miles with quite a bit of elevation change. We started seeing people on our descent - several pairs and a few individuals, a lot for a work day. Trails are mostly clear and wide, but markers are not always clear and are unusually high. A map with all of the trail colors would be beneficial to have on hand, as there are many trails that lead to other parking areas or loop around or end. Beautiful views from several points at the top. Be sure to check out the side trails. Heard lots of birds, including pileated woodpecker and turkey.

Hiked this trail in mid June 2018. Hiked on Friday evening from 5pm-9pm, and didn't encounter any other people on the trail. Pretty good exercise. The summer foliage covers a lot of what would be some spectacular views. The trail makes a sharp U turn to the left after you reach the Yellow trail. Keep an eye on the trail markers and don't just follow the trail on the ground.
