Lovely views the entire trail but noise from BRP initially is disturbing but fades after a couple miles.

Good variety of grade changes. Opens up for panoramic views. Only negative is car noise from BRP.

It was okay. The first half of the hike follows closely beside a moderately busy highway, which kind of pulled me out enjoying the natural beauty of the area. If I were to do this hike again, which I probably wouldn't, I would start at a point further along the trail somewhere on ox creek road.
