Favorite trail in park (spring). Had an unbelievable day, everything was just right. Did it in opposite direction than the guide. Rewarded with nice meadows once you reach the top, and a gentle grade all the way down. Took 6 hours strolling along. Nobody on the trail all day except, birds, 3 snakes(2 in water, 1 in tree), cows, wild turkeys, 30+ deer, rabits, squirrels, nice breeze, plenty of sunshine and wildflowers. Catch this trail in the spring, when it dries out the catails would probably drive you mad. Do the peaks in the fall.
