Comments:

started around 9ish.... no one on the trail until later in the afternoon.... but then only one hiking and 3 on horseback.  Terraine varies from dirt and grass to sand to rocky (all on the same trail and without warning).  mostly flat, but few small hills.... couple of pretty good downhill/uphills on the longer hike.  Take a compass with you...maps on the trail are kinda misleading ....points you in one direction, then you come to a fork, but no map to further guide you.  Penitentiary Hollow as awesome.  Few Rock Climbers were out.... beautiful view and impressive rock/hill.  nice view of the lake.  Would definitely do again.
