The route provided was REALLY confusing as it is not marked well AT ALL. The loop is closed in getting to the top. In all, it was beautiful, but didn't see all the things offered. Be prepared to avoid a LOT of horse poop. I mean a lot.
Quite a nest of trails on this hike, not a great amount of payoff for the distance.
This was a very good trail. As the last reviewer stated it needed a few more signs but I was able to follow the map they provide for the most part. Over all I thought it was a good workout. We did about 8 miles overall. we ran across only 2 other hikers and three on horse back during our 4 hour hike.
I would give 5 star but the trail markers are almost non existent! If we had brought the topo too we would not have missed a lot of things, like the lookout and the chimney. Either way, it is very secluded and in excellent condition. Highly recommend on a weekday, we did not go on a weekend so not sure of the horse traffic. Easy to avoid the horse droppings and nice switchbacks for FAST elevation gain (so fast on foot you will need to pop your ears up and down several times). We will definitely be back, but with the topo to use in conjunction with the guide :D
