Solid hike - enough uphill to get the heart going with some rewarding views at the top.

Lovely trail: moderate ascent through mostly hardwood forest with occasional views to the valley below. Views from Inspiration Point and Sunset Rock were spectacular on this sunny October day.

This was a fairly easy hike, but as we started from the Schutt Road parking lot, we also added 2 miles to our hike. If you start within the North South Lake Campground it is shorter. This trail is easy to also take a wrong turn on, and we did, adding another mile. Inspiration Point was aptly named. Lovely.
