Done as part of a loop from Alan Seeger (up the Ross trail and back down the Johnson Trail/Greenwood Spur). Brutally steep climb up... no switchbacks. No major vistas, and the day we went (early May) was absolutely miserable. Mucky trail, crazy gnats. One to try again under better conditions perhaps. Not the best marked, but red blazes at least on the upper 2/3.

Did this as end of a large loop back to Greenwood Furnace SP. There is a sign post on Stone Creek Rd for the trail (right by a house), but immediately after turning on the trail I had trouble locating it around the creek area (don't recall any blazing). Eventually found it and although I knew from the map that it would be difficult ascent it was pretty darn rough being the end of my hike. It seemed to go on FOREVER, but yes, great for the fitness and good if you hate switchbacks. There is one particular spot on the initial ascent where is extremely steep (with rocks). After that, it levels off a, actually it doesn't...the fun has only begun. Some overgrowth in parts, but for the most part was easy enough to find despite the limited blazing.
