Trailnis in awesome condition. Fantastic morning. It's obvious that someone has cleared many downed trees very recently. Great job! Super fun trail.

 Title and description reads true. Puts a smile on my face any time from any direction. Great for all skill levels. Busy on weekends during the summer months with nice weather. Groups of hikers sure to be around any bend. Evenings and weekdays are best
