Nice trail, it has varying details depending on where you look. If you start at the parking lot, and go to the intersection with Kettle Crest Trail, you've covered 5.4 miles out and back. The trail quickly moves to a moderately steep and steady incline, then concludes with breaking out of the woods to more moderate switchbacks, which makes for a very nice trail (most strenuous first, then easier). The views begin to open up as you reach the large switchbacks, and you can see for a long ways (see panoramic shot).
