Overall it was a nice trail, nothing spectacular when we went but could see the views being better in early spring or late fall. Typical PA trail with lots of "rocks" embedded in the trail which makes taking your eyes off the trail in order to appreciate the surroundings harder. Some spots it was easy to get off trail but nothing you can't easily double back on to correct the situation. There's a really nice clearing about 1.5 miles in with great wind. This section takes you to the camping site around mile 65 which allows you to stop and eat/drink before doubling back to the trail head.
