Good morning hike to get blood flowing, not much for views

Did this trail today (7/20/17), started at 9am and ran into only 3 people the duration of the out and back trail.
Easy to follow the trail. Lots of fun little bugs flying around the pathway. Most people seem to take the other trails so this trail was less traveled. We brought our dog with us and he thoroughly enjoyed it!
*No trash cans or bathrooms for waste* pack it in, pack it out!

This trail is beautiful, shaded, and fairly level. I did this hike a little before sunset and got quite turned around. There are many social trails that leave this trail and head back toward the highway. Usually it's easy to tell which trails are which, but here the social trails are just as wide and well traveled as the Christmas Tree trail, making it hard to know whether you are on the actual trail or not. I picked up the trail where Sandy Seep meets it and hiked it most of the way. In turning around I mistakenly followed a wide social trail which turned into a thin bike track. I recommend not hiking this at dusk and making sure you have a GPS with you or some way to know which direction you need to be going.

This was an ok hike, used this to extend our hike as there are a lot of loops in the area.

Decent trail for a beginner. Most of it you're walking through forest on easily identifiable trails. Good for a quick walk with the dog.

It's a pretty walk through the forrest with a gentle incline going north. I did this from Fatman's Loop to Sandy Seep as part of a larger loop.

Good hike. It has more shade and a more gradual climb then Fatman Loop.
