This hike was very nice and relaxing with several mild ascents and descents. Near perect weather with no threats of rain.
The trail was well canopied, which kept us shaded on this sunny day. Only one real view spot, but the forest was lovely. Over the second half of th hike we encountered several ladders which were needed to get over barbed wire fencing. The last mile of this hike was through open pasture.
