It was a nice walk in the woods, and that was about it.
There is a mistake in the guidebook -- the trail starts near Cabin 22, NOT near Cabin 24. Also, some of the trail intersections were not well marked (fortunately, most intersections were well marked).
Really nice walk,i am not sure I could categorize it as a hike, :) but know the other trails before you try another, made the mistake of going up the Cameron trail and we will be hurting for days!
Easy to get to. Nice park. Fair amount of parking at the lodge. Not many people, either. Mostly golfers. Good hike. Trail is wide, well marked and well maintained. Good dirt surface with a few loose stones. Plenty of big rocks to scrabble over, although you have to leave the trail to reach them. Also, plenty of places to stop for a view, which is mostly limited to the sloping hillside since in the summer the trees block the surrounding mountains. Only complaint: The trail head is at the rear of the driveway of Cabin 25, not 24. The blazes are bright and visible. Good for a short hop.
