Trail is well maintained at first, but about 1.5 miles in it is overgrown and has a lot of poison oak.

The poison oak issue wasn’t nearly as bad as previous reviewers mentioned. The trail is definitely over grown in places, and could do with some machete treatment. I took the risk and hiked it in shorts and a T-shirt and didn’t get any poison oak on me.

This trail is only for mountain bikers that are immune to poison oak. Hard to avoid if you’re hiking and impossible if you’re on a mountain bike. Single track is a foot wide at most, and the poison oak lines a good portion on both sides.

Enjoyed this hike, it's a perfect distance for us, over an interesting variety of terrain. (not a lot of vertical.) The extremely sturdy bridges (over dry streams) were appreciated but a bit over-engineered for their purpose. This hike is marred by long stretches of narrow single track with sporadic overgrown Poison Ivy's, Oaks and Sumac. Hikers REALLY need to be carrying some kind of bush clearing tools) to clear the overgrowing branches back off the narrow path to safely pass through. We spent a good part of the hike limbo dancing, squeezing sideways between overhanging branches and wherever we could breaking the poison branches by stepping on them. If the path could be widened to double track all the way around this hike could easily become a favorite go-to hike. We did enjoy this hike, but it took us an hour extra due to constantly having to stop to negotiate past poison branches. Lots of direct sun, make sure to carry plenty of water.

Great trail after all this rain. Probably the best time of year to go. Beautiful scenery and a good maintained trail.

Was a great trail but wouldn’t want to do it in the summer. Some of the trail was overgrown and poison oak would definitely be an issue. Overall, great winter trail.

It was my first and a New Years Day trail run. Very pretty, I can see it getting hot in the summer.

Great long hike for you & the dogs. Water close all trail long, they'll run wild. Good cold weather hike.

Great spring hike. Wildflowers change weekly. There is not a lot of shade due to fires a few years back. Poison oak is present, but avoidable.

Three of us hiked this today. The trail was easy, with some moderate uphill climbs. Some have reported poison oak along the trail, but it was not an issue at this time of year for us. We parked where the trail crosses the road. It's an enjoyable hike!

I worked in this area as a trail maintenance worker. I loved every day that I worked on this trail. just a couple years ago was manicured for a few miles by good people so I'm sure it is pretty maintained in most spots, a walk that wouldn't disappoint.

Trail is overgrown with poison oak and other brush about a mile in from the boat ramp all the way to the top. Trail should be closed. It is hazardous and dangerous.

It's full of poison oak, it is well maintained but about 1.5 miles in it's everywhere

I hiked this trail in the heat of summer. Buut having the lake so close made it nice. Take a dip if you get too hot!

Easy hike, near the lake (when the level is up). Look for a small sign and pull out on the left hand side of the road to find the start.

The trail head is at the Jones Valley parking area. It is a loop, beginning and ending there. It does cross the road at one point but is easily visible on the other side.
