As previously stated, the "trail was difficult to follow near the stream. There were many fallen trees crossing the narrow path near the stream and an overgrowth of bushes."

Loved this gorgeous park. The scenery was a 5 star, but this trail was difficult to follow near the stream. There were many fallen trees crossing the narrow path near the stream and an overgrowth of bushes. Definite trail maintenance with a chainsaw is needed.

The first stream crossing was challenging but we made it across with dry boots. The second stream crossing was too much for us (and for the couple we saw trying to cross in the opposite direction). We gave up on the trail and headed back to the parking lot on the main trail.
