Wow, that was miserable! I hiked this trail from the Upper Arcadia CG, to the summit, down the gravel road to the Shannon CG, and back to the Arcadia TH. The trail from the Shannon CG and the hike to the top from the trail junction were actually very sweet, a beautiful area. However the trail from Arcadia is SIGNIFICANTLY overgrown, and unfortunately I packed light, no pants for protection. :o The raspberry bushes are insanely thick and sharp! There is a lot of deadfall too, which I don't mind, but between that and the overgrowth, staying on the trail was a bit challenging. Again, this would be a beautiful trail from the Shannon CG. Or with a machete and football pads : rambo :
