Beautiful trail, lots of open areas and not much shade.
One lane road getting to and from so drive slowly for cars and boats coming opposite direction. Good size parking lot that still fills up. I parked on side of road about 0.3 mile out. First quarter mile or so of trail was a lot of seeded rocks on the trail, unavoidable. You have to pay attention to where you step.
A couple of spots had forks in the trail with no clear indication of where to go to stay on the trail. I couldn’t get GPS for Alltrails app so I just followed fellow hikers’ decisions.
