The section from Long Pine Dam Crest is a gradual incline with some rocks but not very difficult. The ridge winds in and out of shaded regions and more open ones. The best time of year is probably late summer because almost the entire route from the bottom of the hill to where it crosses with the EUB trail is covered in blueberry bushes. Early July seemed about two weeks too early. Took the EUB trail back to the parking lot and 1) was glad I didn't hike up that way because of the steep incline and 2) the tall grass had grown up on that section which needed to be beaten back. There are small signs which say it is rated "most difficult" but I would not characterize this trail that way.

Hiked the Abigail Trail near Long Pine Reservoir today. Started at the small parking area on Birch Run Rd and hiked down beside the reservoir until reaching the dam. Crossed the top and began the trail. Nice easy ascent then flattens out on the ridge. Nice mountain laurel everywhere. Path is easy walking with smaller occasional rocks. Several open areas. We missed the turn needed to complete the loop and instead continued North until ultimately cutting over to meet Birch Run Rd again. Will definitely repeat.
