Just an average hike, in my opinion. There was a nice little stream near the top, but other than that it was just another walk in the woods (typical Eastern hike) but without any great overlooks.
It is well marked and probably better in the winter when there are no leaves.
We did detour initially to a waterfall near the campground and that was pretty cool.
