As mentioned the road up turns into gravel for the last 2 miles with potholes. There are short trails to the top with limited view. There is a long loop, Nelson ridge with a limited views. Its rocky with post holes from horses as it is a Horse Camp area. Its weird Mt Biking isn't mentioned but it is a unspoken rule that bikes are allowed here as there used to be a Mt. Bike Group that used these trails a lot and they were the only ones that kept the trails open.

Well maintained trail with beautiful forest, amazing falls and suspension bridge.

it's just a residential road

This is a great hike! Starts downhill which is uncommon and preferred. Here is my video on the place:

Gorgeous hike. Felt like you were truly in the middle of nowhere.

OK, so this isn't much as a hike. But it is a terrific walk, with lots of historical info that makes the trail come alive. Take a while and stroll down memory lane, it's worth the visit. You can get to the trail head from two sides, I recommend going up one and down the other. A nice little gravel road in the forest.

The trail follows the creek, with many scenic spots. Its like a waterfall version of a greatest hits album, the beautiful spots just keep on coming. The trail is easily traversed and the only a few people even during the summer. The only real negative would be the limited viewing from the trail. Even with many great sites, it is often hard to get the optimum view.

Gorgeous young forest full of ferns and delicate understory plants. A high trail that slopes gently and gives light-filled forest views from midday on. Trail is wide, well maintained, and has few roots. Suspension bridge is beautiful and a bit of a thrill to cross. Go all the way to the bottom for best falls view, and view of bridge high above. Worth it.

On a logging road, so it doesn't seem like much of an adventure. The only time you can see the creek is at the very beginning, and you can't really get near it. It was fun for berry picking. When you get to the top there isn't any view worth seeing because of the trees.
