Steep rocky climbs. Small creek at the beginning/end. There were several areas where the trail was not clearly marked.

This is a rockhounders dream. This area is also known as Traverse Creek Special Interest area and is owned by the Forest Service.

This area has beautiful serpentine rocks, but they do contain asbestos, so don’t pulverize them (asbestos particles are harmful). There is free parking, but not a lot.

The road to this spot is super twisty, so be prepared for that.

Not really enchanted by this trail. Much prefer Coma area hikes (Cronan ranch, Marshall state park)
