Nice hike, we had great weather. It's sad that the fire tower was not open. I'm sure there would have been some nice views.
This was the green blazed trail and appeared to be recently re-marked so it was easy to follow. You do have to trust yourself when crossing the roadways but there are enough marks to find your way. Overall the hike is not overly difficult but there are not many views other than around Hopewell Lake. I went mid-week and it is extremely peaceful. So if you want a moderate hike that takes 2-3 hours depending on how often you stop this is perfect.
enjoyable hike..ties into majority of all other trails in case you want to wander off to another direction. check my video on youtube under "polishpicl" for a video of this trek.
