First to Review

Thought I’d write about this hike since no one else has. It’s an old service or forestry road that isn’t maintained. Path is dirt/gravel/grass/moss. I’d recommend pants or convertibles if grass or other plants irritate your skin. I didn’t find much in the way of a viewpoint except at a washout where my pic was taken. We went a little over 2 miles in, but the path does keep going, maybe another .5 miles, according to a friendly local we talked to on the way down. Overall, it’s a good hike if you’re training for a longer, steeper hike, or if you just want the exercise. It is continuously uphill, fairly steep, but moderately difficult. And, there were quite a few downed trees across the path, but nothing you can’t go over or under easily.
