Areas near the pond and streams were quite muddy - wear waterproof boots. After the pond, a decent climb up to a lookout with a bench. Views were mostly obscured by vegetation in the summer but it was still nice to stop and enjoy the breeze. Lots of interesting mushrooms along the trail.

Straightforward and well-marked. Easy except for a few squelchy mud spots. Saw a black bear cub run across the path about 10 feet from me, no sign of a mother. Lots of bugs - bring bug spray, and possibly bear spray too if you're feeling cautious.
