This forest has been hit hard by the drought. Lots of dead and downed trees along the hike. So this trail is not about the journey, but the destinations: the huge boulders along the way were mind-boggling! The large pond at the end of the trail is worth exploring - it's beautiful. That said, I do not recommend this hike, because the point is the journey, not the destination. We decided to circumvent the same miserable forest on the return and cut through the campgrounds to return via the lake pathway. A bit longer, but a much more pleasing return. I would not do this hike again.
