Nice trail, marked ok but there are some places where its not as much. Trail is with some nice views once you are closer to the ridge line. Ruins of the lodge are very cool and well worth the hike. Trail parallels the lead off to the Spring, which is also worth seeing. Park map of trail is pretty but bring some extra water and food if you try to follow it.

You can still see the damage from the 2017 tornado on this trail, but it’s still a good, quick hike.
