This was our final hike of the week (5 hikes in 5 days). This is a rather long hike and with a long drive home afterwards, we decided to only do half.Well maintained trail that you share with horses, so be ready and to move and give the riders notice that you're there.  This is an upward climb the entire time. Nice forestry, and good views across the valley. Not really any good places to stop along the way for lunch, so maybe the end was a better destination (?).Honestly, we were just exhausted from the long week of hiking.  Great run down though :o)
