I really like this trail. I did it first and mostly in the dark yesterday as part of my Saranac 6r ultra. It's easy in the beginning and then a steep climb, but well marked and without too much boulder scrambling (as part of the 6r I'd rather do this one in the dark than Haystack or MacKenzie). I read that you don't need to go to the viewless summit for the 6r but I went there anyway. Not much to see, the lookout is nice on the way, about .5 from true summit. A nice soft trail on the feet with lots of pine needles. I watched the sun rise through the trees as I hiked - quite lovely!
