This trail is rated as moderate and is a hot spot for hiking and fishing. Note that there are certain sections of the trail that have steep inclines, narrow paths, and rocky areas.

It is also important to note that some parts of the trail are not very well-marked, especially when covered with leaves. Stay attentive.
