Nice moderate trail. The start is actually a power line road but about 1/4 mile the scaly mountain trail begins on the right. Nice upward slope to the trail. About three visible openings near the end to see the mountain views. Most of the trail is heavily tree covered but the end is worth the effort.

Nice moderate climb. Some areas of the trail felt like you were going through tunnels because of the mountain laurels. There was also a cool tree growing on a rock that's worth seeing near the top.

Nice easy climb! Take appropriate shoes! Trail gets muddy towards the top.
