I believe this is the Davis Gulch Trail now. Nice very moderate hike. Lots of poison oak though.

The trail was well groomed and pleasant to hike. There were some narrow steep sections but nothing that would be considered hard. I recommend that this trail be taken in the spring, as there would be some nice creeks running from runoff at that time.
