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.
