Fairly easy trail that resembles more of dirt road than a trail, used mainly for off road vehicles. Couple of areas where there are some steep elevation changes, and there is a creek that runs for about a mile of the trail. Well maintained trail that looks to be more for off-road vehicles than hiking or biking. The creek was running well for the first mile and there were some good views along the trail. The trail seems to link the groom creek area with hwy 89 and the campsite at the trailhead. There was a real abundance of wild flowers along the trail.

This was a nice walk through the woods. Nothing strenuous to get the blood moving. Decent scenery.

This is an average trail that is more developed for off road vehicles than for hiking or biking. The first mile has a running creek which is really nice, and the wildflowers were amazing. It connects to other trails and ends at groom creek.
