It’s a really good trail. However there is a timber project going until fall 2020 so you can’t quite get to the summit. There is still a pretty good view from the power lines but disappointing to not be able to go a the way up.

It was slightly overgrown in some areas but it was a fantastic hike. I saw a fungi I had never seen before known as ghost plant or Indian pipe. The end of the hike had been logged so the view was a little tainted but it was very beautiful. This is a long hike and I would recommend this trail to beginners willing to push themselves!

Large part of trail was in a good condition, but some part of trail was in a very bad condition. We couldn't find a way to go to the peak.

Nice day for a hike water on trail above the power lines. Hiked the South side on way up. Snow above 1000' . Microspikes helpful. Watch for trail off logging road. Pink tape on trees.

They’re doing logging near this trail so the trailheads are difficult to find. Got lost a few times due to the trails being cut into different sections with no discernible trail markers. Plus parts of the trail are not well maintained. Not the coolest views either. Just a lot of forest and ferns.

Good gentle walk, but not much to see. We didn’t see any waterfalls and the trail ended on a gravel road under the crackling power lines.

The start was a little tricky to find, it’s across the street from the side you can park on right by a school bus sign. The hike itself was a breeze. Not too much elevation, on and off tree cover. Saw all of three other people despite there being quite a few cars parked. Overall very nice quick day hike.

A little muddy in places but not bad considering. Trail's in good shape and I'd say it's more easy than moderate. No beautiful vistas but still a nice trail. Will go back and take the littles next time.

Super muddy/wet. Not that challenging. No views... the trail just ends under the power lines. So, if you want a muddy walk through the woods, this is perfect for you. Otherwise, pick a different trail.

Trail was good. Views??? That option needs to be removed for filtering. There were none. Walked to power line in and out.
