Right now creek is pretty dry. Minimal flowers blooming due to a dry winter. I like this trail because of the low traffic. I went in only 5 miles and turned around due to time.

really pleasant gradual uphill next to stream, beautiful country. keep your eyes open for the plentiful and wellbuilt cairns that lead back and forth across the stream.
