Not a lot of information on this trail. As we made our way down we turned at the first marker, making it a counter clockwise loop. Definitely recommend this route as less elevation gain on the way back. We lost the trail at a creek junction (based off the all trails map) we cut up a forest service trail for about half a mile and redound trail 720. There’s some great views, plenty of water and overall a pretty level trail. PLEASE NOTE, while we only ran into two other hikers we ran into many dirt bike and mountain bikers. Wasn’t really an issue, but just something to remember.

Lastly, HIGHLY recommend a high clearance vehicle and 4wd. With that said, there was a suburaru outback at the TH.
