Was a beautiful trail but didn't see anything "huge" that would make the trail worth doing again. Some nice small water spots but lots of elevation.

I have hiked this trail a number of times as part of a Wildcat Ridge - AT - Riprap loop. There are limited vista views (though Chimney rocks is pretty nice), but some nice waterfalls along the loop. Lots of elevation.
