Muddy today, but a good morning hike. made harder by the wet conditions. Great birds, turtles, and snails.

Nice, moderate trail with nice views of the creek and some impressive rock formations. It was dry when we visited, but we could see remnants of small waterfalls which encouraged us to come again in the rainy season. A nice fall hike!

i have hiked this trail many many times in both directions. there are great views of 14 mile creek. an awesome spring fed trough that existed pre park when a farm was located in the area, lots of wildflowers in the spring and some really cool sinkholes and several benches along the trail made from storm fallen trees.
