Went hiking overnight. The road is bad, but the subaru made it. I recommend a truck. There is a $5 National forest fee, which is payable at the parking area with cash in an envelope. The trail starts nice and easy, however the second half is really unmaintained, hundreds of huge trees cover the trail. I took a dog and had to lift her over about half of them. There are huckle berries and wild strawberries about 2 miles in. Also, lots of bear scat but didn't see any bears, or any animals save for a few birds. At the end of the trail 4.1 miles in, there is a nice camp but is covered with potential widow makers, but if you cross the river there is a nice meadow. The place is super dry, and a burn ban was in effect. Also, there are ticks but only saw one and my hiking buddy saw a few rattle snakes. Overall, not bad.

Only about 2miles in the trail is navigably I came to a part where the trail was not in existance. Fallen trees and lot of water was filling the uprooted trees. I could not go one and turned around. This was 3 weeks ago.
