An excellent trail, actually intermediate and with mixed views! We only saw 2 other people the whole time. Trail full of surprises. Theres a pretty steep incline if you are injured or have weak knees stay away.
Cons: Tons of horse flies and spiders.

Trail walking next to a stream for most of the way. No great view at the top.

Even though we hiked this in winter expecting some views through the woods, we really didn't see any. Elevation change to the summit is not too bad; we combined this with other trails to create a pretty good workout. Not a bad set of trails for this part of the state.

Another great trail in Medoc Mountain State Park. I've hiked it numerous times and it's always enjoyable. There is some evidence of an old scout camp and a concrete dam along the trail.
