I went with a troop of Boy Scouts on this one yesterday. It was a beautiful day for a hike and this trail was an easy one for the boys. We had hoped to be able to find the lookout tower manned by the Forest Service, but unfortunately they were taking the day off :( . The trail was a nice easy one with very little elevation change. However, I wouldn't give it more than a 3 out of 5 because of the condition of the trail. Maybe it was due to last week's late Spring storms, but there were probably 100 fallen trees on the trail, making it a bit cumbersome to hike. It seemed like we were constantly going around the fallen trees which kind of got old after 6 or 7 miles. It would probably not be too fun to bike this trail in its current condition for the same reason. This trail also doesn't benefit from any outstanding views or destinations, but was still a nice one with some pretty meadows. Not a bad one for a Troop of boys, but I sure hope the Forest Service can clean it up a bit!
