Nice trail. Not too challenging for the first hike of the year. Still some snow covered spots and some slick muddy spots.

A great winter hike. Fortunately the snow was just starting to melt so the mud was a minimum. It was wet but the up and down hills made for a nice moderate 4 hour hike.

Nice Hike with the dogs. I have done this one a few times, can be muddy and slippery early in the year but really nice in the summer and early fall.

A great hike. I took my time with frequent stops to enjoy the views, it took me about 4 hours to complete. I went after a night of rain, it was slightly muddy but nothing impassable.

Nice hike. Some nice views on the Prairie Creek side, and a nice hike through the woods on the other two legs. Some nice grassy places to picnic or crack a beer along Prairie Creek. The uphill parts just remind you that your getting some exercise. Will hike it a few more times this summer.
