Just got home from hiking Axsom Loop. It's my first hike in 19 years. it definitely rekindled my spirit and my desire to spend time away. There were a couple of rough spots with trees that were down, but I'm sure USFS will fix it. We also had a major downpour about an hour before my son and I got there, so it was a little muddy. The good news is, it was a perfect break-in hike for my new shoes!

Had a wonderful time.
The trail was a bit muddy in places, but was to be expected because of the recent rain.
The view from our campsite was beautiful.
Only issue was someone across the way play music late in the night.

This is a great trail out & back , was pretty muddy on this trip , but on dryer times it would be great , The lake is a welcome reward at the end , 5.1 miles one way

April trip to the Axsom Valley was full of wildflowers, moss, lichens, ferns, mushrooms, thunder storms, flash floods, and The Cabin. Do not come here and camp if you're not prepared for the backwoods. We survived a flash flood and got to experience the aftermath. It was beautiful; The "Flood Epic" story ☺. Please respect the archaeology and wilderness here. It somehow skipped the 20th century and why not see that in perpetuity?

Was a bit muddy in several places, keep your eyes open for trail bypasses to the left and right to help stay dry.

We had a great time hiking and camping out by the Lake. Trails were a little muddy, but we had a lot or rain last week. Will be returning as soon as possible.
