not much of a hike at all. the best view was of the creek from the bridge on the road! further down this dirt road was chiquita banana trucks burning the peels and boxes of bananas and boy did it stink! do NOT recommend this at all. real bummer

I was a rebel and parked without paying a fee, hoping i can check out the trail before anyone came by to give me a ticket. Thankfully I didn’t get a ticket and walked the whole 2 miles and back.... I don’t see how this “hike” is considered moderate, it’s literally a dirt road.

Dirt road to no where. I am surprised this is considered a trail. It seemed like a dirt road for vehicles for the farm it runs along. Definitely not worth a parking fee.

Not a clear road/trail - not worth $6

Sorry but didn't hike this trail, wasn't sure if it was worth the $6 parking fee for a 2 mile hike.
