Road closed to the trailhead. Have to walk in two miles on a dirt road before actual hike starts

This trail was not maintained. It would appear, then disappear. We had to use gps often to make sure we were headed in the right direction. If you are up for an adventure you may like this hike, but the uncertainty was not pleasant for us. We were also chased by horse flies the entire time which may have been a seasonal problem. The best part was the numbers of nesting bird species present. Maybe by August, hikers will have created trail. Date of hike 6-15-17.

It was a beautiful easy hike. The mountain flowers were spectacular.

Nice Saturday afternoon trail. Took alternate route back through Dutton Canyon. Great afternoon hike. Only difficult area was down canyon from ridge trail.

I run this trail system regularly. Its actually considered Turkey springs trail system. All in all it pretty flat however lots of variety with the ability to link different trails. Good snowshoeing in the winter as well.
