Great easy trail with occasional benches to take a break and have a snack or drink. Beautiful views

Pleasant? Forest, swamp and river views.

Great Day Hike. This trail is small and easy. However, if you start near the water, about 1/4 milefrom the end you will notice a fork in the trail. Take it, and you will get to enjoy much more. That fork will take you an additional 3.5 miles through the woods. Keep your wits about you and follow the well beaten path and it will take you through a couple mud bogs, over a little foot bridge, over plenty of low lying rolling hills and by a neighborhood. There are tons of switchbacks in there, so it may not look far on a topo map, but turn after turn adds up. You will them cross flanners beach rd. Once on the other side, you will hike an additional 2.2 miles through even more switchbacks. This side has a steady elavation, but will take you by another neighborhood, past a little maintenance shack, and spit you out once again, by the water. From there, you can go left or right, left for more woods, right for the picnic area.

Trail maintenance could use some work on the extended hike.

Total distance is somewhere in the neighborhood of 7-8 miles depending on whether you pursue side trails. Definitely worth doing. Bring water as there are no treated water sources around once you exit the main picnic/camping area.

I love this hike. You just might spot my Subaru parked there while I am out doing this very same hike.

P.S. The horse flies are stone cold savages
