The majority of the trail was good, but Mother Nature is making frequent and numerous strides to take back her territory with dirt and scree. I'd want to hear from someone else before doing it again after the season rains. The third sign from the trailhead is not clear if you are not familiar with the trail. The Lion Canyon Trail is on the hill to the left, not up the canyon. Tall grass may obscure the path. Lion Creek had a nice flow because of the recent rains.
