If you follow the new trail the poison oak is avoidable. Didn't see a single snake. Lots of bugs. Water is GREAT! PICK UP YOUR TRASH!

Beautiful trail- seems to be a local favorite. The warnings about the poison oak are real. Wear clothing that covers your legs for this hike. I was told that the poison oak is especially bad during this part of the summer. We made it a few miles in but then there was a pass that was so thick with poison oak we could not go through, there would have been no way to get through it untouched so we had to turn around and head back. Hope that this can be better maintained because it's a beautiful trail and we wanted to see more. Lots of creek crossings so wear proper footwear.
