Beautiful in the spring when wildflowers are blooming and water is flowing! Great for backpacking and day hikes. Lots of river crossing, so be prepared to get your boots wet!
Not sure if I had a unique experience, but this trail is definitely sketch! It's not hiked very often so the trails is overgrown in a few places leading up to the school house. The trail leaving the schoolhouse east is really hard to see! My friend and I got lost and had to back track. Also, watch out for wild donkeys
Good hike and great for beginners
Went backpacking on this trail took around 4 1/2 hours to hike all the way out to school house. Went in mid June it is very dry and was minimal flowing water but still some at certain stops (use filtration tabs and drank the flowing water felt good didn't get sick) I do recommend bug spray and sunscreen it was around 80 degrees when I went and feels like it!! But all around great hike!!
Great hike. Bring sunscreen and bug spray. Took me about 5 hours one way. Lots of creek crossings being extra socks and shoes!! Sometimes it's hard to find the trail but just follow the stacked rocks. Thank you to whomever started stacking them they helped a lot!
Very nice hike.
