Overall this is a pretty bland trail with little scenic value past the first 200 yards or so. The trail does go quite a bit further than is listed here though. I turned around at mile 1.6 due to a thick section of blow down that just wasn't worth all of the climbing over and ducking under trees. The trail clearly went on though. That said, if you're looking for some solitude and are willing to put in the effort, this hike will give it to you.
