Nice hike but hard. There is no view from the pick
I give it four stars because it's as wild as it gets 20 minutes from my place in Skyway, steep with lots of cedar, hemlock, maple, yew, and Sauthkt ('devil's club') boggy bits surprisingly high up. The trail is narrow in most spots, room for only single file. The protected area is about 2/3 up with a gate telling you you can't bring your horse or ATV. All kinds of trees and birds, no real view at the top, just a microwave installation. The signs' orientation doesn't seem to have much of a connection to the trails they're supposed to refer to, I followed one that said it would take me back to the Trailhead and after about .2 mi the trail puttered out completely and it went into a gully with a cliff and a creek. I also blame Google maps for that one because it concurred.
