I had a blast on this trail. Check out my virtual hike here: https://youtu.be/aRcdlEpHrkM

Start early this time of year to avoid the heat. It's the kind of trail that starts off easy and ends hard because the incline is on the way out. I loved the shade and scenery on this trail. There are a few structures along the way and the camp is a great spot to take a break before the way back out. Make sure to check out the creek by following the bridge at the end of the campground.

Make sure to wear bug spray. The commenter below was not kidding. I had a whole team of gnats and mosquitos by the end.

This is a moderate hike, I was definitely working up a good sweat and felt amazing coming back up to Red Box.

Here's some music to bring along with you on the trail: https://sptfy.com/1WWa
