Nice trail with moderate climb and wildlife. I have done this trail twice and would suggest doing it when it is dry as many areas get muddy. Wildflowers and lush forests abound. We saw our first bobcat on the trail last week.

As said in the other reviews, this trail should be rated moderate. Several fallen trees and needs maintenance. Great forest and some meadows, but no scenic overlook views.

Trail was not “easy” as advertised. Overgrown in many parts. Long drive on skinny roads to reach destination.

Forested trail, pretty but no view.

Great trail run / hike... although I would rate it as moderately difficult instead of easy. And it could use some maintenance

Easily accessible but not well maintained. Heavy blow down and hard to follow trail at times.
