I love this trail. It's the second time I have hiked it. 4/18/18 I done this trail and saw so many beautiful wildflowers. It's a fairly flat trail but a lot to see . It can be muddy in spots but still worth the effort to hike it. Not a lot of other hikers out on the trail which made it very peaceful day. I never saw any scary animals on this trail like the other review said just some birds. I will be back again. Loved this trail.
