A pretty easy hike though gorgeous red wood pines. This trail is more fun to cross country ski than it is to hike. It was cooler when I went so it wasn't buggy at all but in the summer I could see it being full of them. Parts of the trail were swampy even with the beams that have been laid to avoid the mid. The bridge was a tad nerve racking to walk across being it only has one railing and the water came right up to the lip of it.
