10 mile loop ends at what would be County road 1651 and at one time you could just take it back to the parking lot but it's all under water. Bring two vehicles to park at each end or be prepared to hike/bike another 1.5 miles on the pavement over to hwy 278 then another 5+ miles back around to the parking lot. Alltrails should delete the loop trail shown.

I thoroughly enjoyed the hike until I realized there was no loop! My husband and I had hiked for four hours and expected to be able to make a full loop, just as the map shows, but the rest of the trail was closed. It was 5:00 pm. There was no way to make it back to our car before dark. We had to call for a ride.

Easy trail. Have done all that is open to the public in one day with average 500ft elevation change. Roughly 14 miles depending on if you skip all the switch backs for bikers. Miles 16 to 20 are through with overgrown fields with little water. 1 to 3 is the most common trailhead with many streams flowing during wet seasons but has one obstacle crossing a creek. Miles 4 to 5 has a lot of loose rock and hard on the feet with moderate creeks. Miles 6 to 9 have lots of overhang and shade but the most elevation for the trail with very few streams.
