Trails are not well marked but the view is nice and the trails were basically empty on the weeknight while I was there.

Not a great trail, at all. The drive there is great, but the trail is not marked well, the views aren't great, and the trail is about 20' from the road the entire hike.

This was a decent trail, but it was not marked very well, and the view is limited because of the trees. This is also not a loop trail, so it's 2.5 miles plus the return to the parking area you choose.
