Got there at 3:30 pm. First quarter of the hike is steep, but not "hard" by any means. After you intersect with the Long Trail (green blaze), it's all smooth sailing for the rest of the trail. Very gentle inclines / declines with a few brief steep, rocky switchbacks towards the end of the trail. Quite swampy from the Long Trail 'till you turn right on the White Bear Trail (white triangle blaze), so bring gators if you hate being wet. Make sure to check out the old iron mine, a eerie, dark yet beautiful cave inside a "canyon" with clear, blue water and a mysterious essence, about a mile after the W-B becomes the yellow blaze trail. The last half (or quarter) of the hike is great, super easy walk with the exception of rocky, semi-steep switchbacks leading towards the end of the A-B trail. Beautiful field at the end with tons of wildlife, great for birding. Beware if you plan to finish the trail through this field, there's TONS of ticks. Besides that, it's a great semi-short, semi-challenging yet fully beautiful day hike.

We hiked here 2 weeks ago. It was absolutely amazing! We even had a close encounter with a black bear and a snake!
