A nice day for a hike in the forest. The summit was a little bit of cross country but most of the 9 miles of hiking was on decent trails. With an elevation gain of over 3300', it made for a good workout. The views were marred by smoky skies and the summit views are blocked in some directions by the trees. Pretty area though and a great hike. I saw no one all day and no indication that anyone had been on any of the trails in some time.
