Nice little trail for hikeing. Part of trail passes by nice cliff faces and neat rock boulders. Few hills to climb but mostly level and ridgetops. Trail makes a loop, and is marked with whit Dimonds.

Nice trail for spring wildflowers. Also as Danny says below, some nice opp's for rock climbing/exploring. The problem is it is supposed to be a loop. Whatever I did, I started the hike on a paved road (CR 1030 or the road that goes to a cemetary) and ended up at a gravel road (1016) - no sign - I had no idea whether to go left or right to reconnect to the paved road where I started - if this happens to you, GO RIGHT! Soon the gravel road will pass a meadow, then go over a ford and back to the paved road.

Excellent. 35 degrees in Feb. The water was a little high on the creek crossings, and most of the small markers for it are gone. But you won't lose the trail, because it is wide enough. However, the track that is recorded here is right on. Except I went across the creek at the south end by the road to the forest service road( the actual trail). It meets back up with the track in a mile or so. A lot of horses use this trail, so it is is wide and wallowed out in places. It was very muddy, but still really enjoyed it. Also, there looks like there could be some rock climbing opportunities, halfway around.
