Good Trail, pretty steep, turn around when you want to. For awesome views go to the base of Gobblers Knob, there Baker Spring as well as Baker Mine. I do this trail every year at least once or twice. If you get a high advantage point with a spotting scope you can locate moutain billy goats looking west of Raymonds Peak,
