My review is from the perspective of an amateur landscape photographer

The trail is easy to follow and adequately marked with white diamond blazes painted on tree trunks. The trail itself is not too rough but there is the occasional stretch of football size rocks if that bothers you. The real issue is mud and flowing water. After a heavy rain the trail turns into a shallow creek with flowing water. You’ll need waterproof hiking boots during the spring or after a storm

The landscape photography opportunities are very limited. You don’t get any views along the trail except for the summit. And those views are particularly obscured by trees around the field. My advice is skip this trail and go to nearby Huckleberry Knob.
