It was a much bigger hike elevation gain wise and longer than I thought it would be but at least it was cool since i got an early start. Don't do this on a hot day, it'd be brutal. Surprisingly, I wasn't alone on this trail once I got to the junction above the campground with a couple other hikers and mountain bikers also enjoying the area. I lost some elevation as I had to drop down into the campground as I had to park up the road near a historical marker.
