This is a nice trail with varying terrain. There are just a few spots for views but still beautiful trail.

There's some small cliffs off the side of the trail that offer some awesome fall veiws.

Nice smooth day hike. Rated harder than actually is, but the views on a clear day don't disappoint.

Great trail. Beautiful sights. Some parts of the trail feel difficult but I went in thinking it was moderate and it did feel moderate at first. It's a great workout but not too difficult.
