I’m sorry but for me it was just ok. I have been doing a lot of hiking lately and I probably wouldn’t do it again.

A very nice trail run. Some technical parts and some nice down hill running. A very nice loop. GPS will lead you to wrong location.

Fun hike! We took the longer loop trail down to the creek at the bottom and back up. I wanted to hike it counter-clockwise as recommended in some of the reviews but I was outvoted. Strenuous at times but not a killer by any means.
