Nice hike, beautiful and serene forest but as others have noted -- the trail is very rugged. You're walking on rocks and large roots virtually the entire time - often sharp and often slippery so need to be careful. We started at Woodland Valley campground and up and back took us about 6 hours though we stopped a few times to enjoy the scenery, including a small mountain waterfall about 3/4 up trail. The lean-in shelter at the end of trail is beside a little meadow that would be good for overnight as well. Next time we'll probably turn right at the junction and head up to Wittenberg instead.
