This trail seems to have a bit more grunt than payoff. The climbs are steep and relentless, and often littered with loose rock. The woods, especially on the west side, are thick enough to prevent getting much in the way of views, so even the scenery doesn't recommend the trail much. The trail doesn't have much in the way of flow, but there is one long stretch on the west side descent that is a real screamer. This trail gets less traffic than many other area trails, so it can be a good alternative if you're looking for a little quiet time while you grunt.
