Nice forest trail which follows a creek for most of the way. Part of the trail is washed out so there are some difficult areas to navigate. This is a point to point trail or out and back. This trail was quite nice to hike with a running creek and plenty of pine trees. The trail gets disappointingly close to the road in places. The trail connects two camping areas, apart from that it seems to go nowhere.

rather boring flat trail that looks like a logging road. not very scenic. I would skip as there are other trails available to hike.

it was fun we started from our house in Ponderosa Park and ended up cutting across the mountain to connect up with the trail. We then followed it down to the Camp Ground

This trail was quite easy to hike, but it was washed out in places which made the terrain very rocky and unstable. The trail got quite close to the road in places, but the running creek was really nice. I am just not sure where the trail is supposed to go to, it is probably mainly used as a short cut for off-road vehicles.
