A sketchy sinkhole trail- only redeeming quality was the vegetation. Both of these previous descriptions are pretty accurate: "an ill maintained trail thru dumping grounds using creekbeds for trails. About as appealing as a walk thru the county dump" "The area in which the hike is located is a little disconcerting. The kind of place where you don't want to be there after dark. On the trail we encountered a LOT of dumping grounds of old washers, ovens, rusty this and that, old tires and just major trash in general"

Unless you wear GTX hiking boots/shoes avoid for 48/72 hours after a rain event. Purple trail blazes became blue and then non-existent. Some trail signs no longer erect. Not very scenic but good for burning some calories.

Nice trail, not much to look at. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves except one. Would hike again but just because it's close to house.

Trail use is light and can be hard to stay on course. Not much to see but it was an easy hike. One and done for me on this trail.

only giving two stars because we got lost for about an hour. landmarks need to be updated so people don't get lost. other than that, it's a really great trail and a beautiful place to hike.

This was an easy trail but there were some areas where it wasn't as well marked as it could be. It had just rained so it was muddy and there were areas where you had to cross small streams.
