This was a great trail! I was looking for something consistently uphill as a challenge but am not quite ready for something as substantial as a short, steep climb. The milage to the top was spread out enough that it felt like a workout without making me weary of my abilities. A rocky portion towards the top was a little annoying but I wouldn't call it difficult. The trail was very easy to follow and wide enough for the pup and my friend and I to walk side by side most of the time. It took us a little under 4 hours. I am eager to return when the trees and whatnot are not bare. I also feel like going around sunfish pond would have been a good addition to the trail. Overall a great hike with good views, and a consistent challenge without being overwhelming.
