Nice to get lost among the tall hemlocks for a while. I read reviews before I went, especially about climbing over downed trees, but there were a lot more and they were more difficult than I expected. We did counter clockwise to go up the mountain on the switchbacks. It was a climb but manageable. The decent gets pretty steep and you have to watch your step with so many twigs on the ground it’s easy to lose your footing. Watch for the plane crash at the top, still several pieces of wreckage you will notice on the right. Decent trail but nothing too amazing to make me feel like I need to do it again.
