I started counter clockwise and was fairly easy at first, but after a few miles became more difficult. There was definitely a lot of steep inclines and declines. I wasn't expecting to see houses in the start and end of the trail, but the trail quickly became pretty remote. Probably the hardest one day hike I have done anywhere around this area. Some great views and nice waterfalls.

The trail is in pretty good condition, but some sections are treacherous. This trail isn't for you if you hike for scenic views, as there are only a couple and you're in the woods the entire time. "Hard" is an understatement for this trail's difficulty. Overall, it's a good, challenging trail.
