Very buggy at spots and LOTS of ticks. Cars can be a bit annoying as they are aloud on some trails. But it was nice and relaxing.

A little hard to find the trailhead; but walk up past the cemetery and it will be on your left if you park by the picnic area. The first half of the hike is on the mid-state trail, which is nice, however the second half is all on dirt roads and dam crossings. Wasn’t as muddy as we thought it would be. Imagine it gets very buggy though. Not much elevation gain. Didn’t see a sole on the trail-good for dogs.
