Nice hike with some good places to stop before the summit. Gus' Lookout was really nice. The only way to see the view from the top is if you go up the lookout tower. Not a good hike for novices or first timers.

I found this moderate trail to be challenging. Loved it regardless. Mostly steep sections, lots of rocks and roots. Some of the trail is flattish with nice gravel. I hiked on a pretty warm afternoon (mid-80), clear day, and was mostly in shade. Will try trail again when I have more miles on my feet, but compared to other moderate trails in the area, I feel this one will still be a challenge.
