You need a permit to hike here. Permit was easy to get and free. Trails are not marked at all. It's kind of creepy hiking at a abandoned college. Felt like I was in the Walking Dead. Sad that the buildings has graffiti on it. Over all really enjoyed hiking here. When done hiking do a body check. My boyfriend got bit my a tick on his chest. Didn't notice it till he took a shower.

Trail is currently under construction and closed to hikers

There is horse manure everywhere in the trail. Better go horse back riding rather than on foot.

This was a mellow hike with only a couple of other people on it. You could hear the noise of Hwy 17 part of the time which was a little distracting and the first section was very muddy.

For the permit

Because you need to get a permit (easy), there won't be many (or any) other hikers. It's an interesting place, with an abandoned college and a couple of ponds. Stick with the area bounded by Bear Creek, 17, and the pond that is NOT at the entry/ trail head for the most interested hiking. Hilly but not too.
