Solitude and a nice remote lunch spot! Starting on an open field, the hike goes through the openness passing some small BLM-owned buildings. To the right of the 1st intersection is a great pond for fishing. This trail has tons of unique plants, a very diverse ecosystem with plenty of animals to see. A small creek runs through the hike, along with a very active plant / tree / forest recovery program by the local Girlscouts. Thanks to the local Girlscouts for the work they have done in this nature area.
Hidden gem. Looking forward to going back in the spring to see the birds. We did see a Heron and the stream was teeming with small fish. Very secluded and quiet - we only saw one other family and a lone horse and rider.
5 stars for the great job the girlscouts did in this area!!
