This hike started out OK with a decent 0.9 mi climb up some single track to the ridge line ( a number of game cameras a located on this portion of the trail). From there you go along the ridge to a parking lot then take an old fire road through a nice glen to the next main section of the trail. That next section is a gravel ATV road that goes pretty much through the next lollipop. All in all a pretty bland hike, though a bland walk through the woods beats sitting in the house/office any day. This is a moderate hike at best (strenuous being Mt Tammany, Dunnefield Creek, AT loop at the Delaware Water Gap)

It was OK. Really nothing more than moderate. The only challenge was the constant uphill from the beginning of the yellow trail. Terrain on the yellow is mediocre at best. When I neared the top I jumped over to the blue trail. Terrain was a bit better, but nothing extraordinary. As you near the end of the blue trails southward direction from the top there is a lock box on your left with notebooks and pens. People leaving messages and tips for the next to come across it. That was pretty interesting. All in all, it's like a regular walk in the woods
