Very awesome hike. Spectacular views the whole way through looking out over the mountain range in all directions. I definitely recommend doing this hike counter clock-wise, as there is a pretty steep area this would be best to climb up instead of down. You’ll come across a few mountain bikers at the beginning and end of the hike near where you park. The hike overall is not too heavily trafficked.

Fantastic views, mostly easy except one sharp climb if you start from the East. I would not recommend going down that hill so the trail is better done counter clock wise.

Amazing views and beautiful forests. I’m a slower hiker and there are some parts which were more rugged than I expected but it was so worth it. Keep your eyes and ears open for mountain bikers.

Lots of trails/service roads in the area, numerous routes to these destinations.
