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

Bring moderately waterproof shoes. If it's been raining definitely drive a good vehicle down because stream runs over pathway

Nice little hike, not challenging at all. Very isolated, only saw one person in the whole loop. There were some streams so you def need to have water resistant shoes. Great for dogs!

Good walking. Had rained several days prior and the trail had many little ponds and streams throughout. Would highly suggest waterproof footwear. Otherwise great trail not very hard and didn't see a soul out there.

Very sandy and evidently frequented by motorized vehicles. Good for a hike not so good for a run.
