    Beautiful hike with great shade and views. Some sections can get a bit steep; beware in muddy or icy conditions. No loop option, so be prepared to hike out and back.

    Even though we did not get to finish the entire trail, it was excellent and deserves a 5 Star rating. Trail is well maintained and has plenty of signs.
