Pleasant trail with couple of views along top (great use of rocks on trail in Clarks Valley region in general). Kinter view has a bit of trees in front so is not exactly unobstructed (can see top of mountain across the way but not so much the valley). I somehow passed right by Table rock which probably has less blocking view. There is also a power line clearing which offers views to both north and south with much graffiti on the rocks on one side. After initial ascent, most of trail is fairly easy with occassional isolated areas of larger rocks. There are neat looking large walls of rock slabs along most of the way at the top which are close enough to climb up if one felt like it. May actually be better in winter without the leaves since the trees are probably thin enough at the top to see views of both north and south while hiking.
