The majority of the trail is in moderate to heavy timber with only a few scenic vistas. Evidence of old mining and timber activities are visible from the trail. The roads to the western trailhead are extremely rough and not recommended for passenger vehicles. There are loops at both trailheads for easy trailer parking. This trail has very little vertical relief for the first six miles from the eastern end, running relatively close to the contours. The trail is rocky and rough in spots visitors using mountain bikes should be prepared for rocky conditions.
