Beautiful hike with a few nice small climbs. Views were lovely even with all the fog. Trails are clearly marked with blazes.

Nice hike but many intersecting trails so you need to pay close attention or you will miss your turns. Old trestle trail is was enjoyable.

Fairly Difficult averaged 3 mph with running the fire road. Great time. My wife and I loved it, but our legs are paying now as we sit a Trail Head for food and a beer!

The trail was decent, but the views were scarce with the exception of my trip up to Lookout's rocky top - spectacular views. Be forewarned that the first 1/2 mile is straight up and the entire trip to Lookout is up steep steps, rocks and stairs - not for the faint at heart. The trail wasn't were marked and a 25% of it was one step below bush whacking. Still enjoyed the day.
