Excellent late summer hike even with wildfire smoke. Moderate rating but easy for seasoned hikers with a mostly level trail and gradual incline. Energetic school-aged kiddos could do this trail. Interesting flora if little fauna. Beautiful views and a diversity of colorful minerals to see. Wildfire tower was locked up but USGS medallion was easy to locate. I didn't see one human soul on this hike in mid-August. Surprising.
