We (my wife and I) left from the CCC trailhead on a cloudy cooler morning this was a very nice hike it gradually ascends 400' to the CCC overlook and meets the Skyline Dr trail and the trails leading to the fort. We chose to descend Skyline Dr. trail. The contrast between the two sides of the mountain are a must see. On the CCC side there is Hwy 118 and with mountainous views and on the Skyline Dr side which descends approx. 400' were beautiful hilly grasslands which were green in this month.  We encountered one person on the hike which was great because who doesn't like solitude?
