An okay trail for just getting a hike in. More bike/ATV friendly than "hike exclusive". Very well marked. The creek and greenery on the west side of the loop is definitely the high point. Hiked midweek and had the trail all to ourselves.

Lots of pea gravel made it slippery. Still nice and not hard.

This is definitely much used by ATV's. Also horses. Does anyone know if there is a trail that goes up to the top of Monument Peak? Now that would be a hike!!!!

It is an ATV trail not a hike. Overused by atvs piles of toilet paper next to running creek. Spinning wheels through wetland. Would be a very nice area with live water in the spring but for ATVs. The ATVs we did see were not out of control, they have simply overwhelmed the area
