Nice trail to find solitude. Can be difficult to follow in a couple areas but doable. Once you get to the cedar bench wilderness area the trail is well defined and easy to follow. Nice trail for an overnight backpacking trip. I brought my two dogs , they enjoyed it just as much as me. Make sure to bring plenty of water.
