Nice forest trail which follows a creek for most of the way. Part of the trail is washed out so there are some difficult areas to navigate. This is a point to point trail or out and back. This trail was quite nice to hike with a running creek and plenty of pine trees. The trail gets disappointingly close to the road in places. The trail connects two camping areas, apart from that it seems to go nowhere.
This trail was quite easy to hike, but it was washed out in places which made the terrain very rocky and unstable. The trail got quite close to the road in places, but the running creek was really nice. I am just not sure where the trail is supposed to go to, it is probably mainly used as a short cut for off-road vehicles.
