I selected this trail because I wanted to do 10 miles and this trail was supposed to be easy. Parts of it were; parts of it weren't. There really is no reason to do this trail rather than any other--there is only one lookout point that is easy to find with a decent view. You pass several camp sites and one shelter, all with water, so it's a nice trail on which to take breaks or have lunch if you don't need a view. The trailhead is easy to find. Take a look at the elevation chart before doing this hike--there are significant up and down hills even though it's an "easy" trail. I got my 10 miles in by going the other direction from the trail head over to Wesser Bald.
