This is a nice walk up to a great view. There will be many quads zipping around on nice days and there is assorted trash from them up at the top. At about half way you will want to take the left hand fork and keep climbing.

There is no hiking trail. A lot of thorny bushes and brush to walk through if you try to follow the trail map. Use the ATV trails.

I've uploaded a screenshot of my loop, it's a much nicer easier walk.

Great hike with very little difficulty. The only problems were we just kind of had to make our own trail and there was random trash at the look out point. We could not find the path.

Yeah I agree with the majority, its not a bad trail at all, short, easily accessible and some fresh mountain springs to drink from, and a nice view at the end. There are no real frills however, and the area has some littered areas here and there but the best thing I think about this spot is you more than likely will have it all to yourself regardless of what time of year you visit or what day of the week. Wish you could uploead photos on here....

The initial climb (meaning half the trail) can be a bit strenuous at times but you are rewarded with a great view and camping spot at the top.
