Started from Bowman Road, so ended up waking mostly on a gravel road, through a campground and past a couple homes. The middle mile, at the lakes, was much better and off the road. About 1/3 of the way was shaded, and the flies were terrible. I probably won't do this trail again, but might make my way to the lakes via some of the other trails in the area.
