This trail is between easy and moderate. After a little over a mile in it does become rocky in sections. It doesn't make for a consistent run out and back.

Great place to run then swim afterwards -- how can you beat that?!

I followed the loop going counter clock-wise. The trail was very narrow and overgrown for about half of it. Navigating was a tad difficult at times Once you get past choke creek, things start to open up a lot more. Campsites are very plentiful. You'll run into at least one every 10 - 30 minutes or so; especially on the creek. The scenery changed quite a bit from dense forest to flower and fern fields. Elevation change was minimal. If the trail wasn't this overgrown, I'd give this maybe a 4 out of 5.

Needs to update and standardize trailblazers but it was a brisk and picturesque trail!
