The first two miles were great. Diverse geography with water, forest, rock walls, and meadows. After that, the trail is extremely overgrown with thick vegetation and is barely visible. Legs got cut up trying to push through them. I lost the trail at 3.5 miles and was only half way up to Storm Mountain. I think the out and back estimate is wrong, it's actually one way.

Someone with a machete really needs to clear this trail! Do not attempt it at its current condition!
