Nice trail. Lots of water access. Crossings were easy late July. Dogs got a bit muddy but well defined trail. A few steeps, but not tough. I only did 3.5 miles in and back.

Came into the middle of the trail and really enjoyed the forest especially with the fall colors

I really want to come back and do this hike when the Aspens turn in the fall. It was a very serene hike - beautiful, lush forest that reminded me of New England. Plan to walk most of the road to the trailhead unless you want to do some serious off-roading. The trail was obvious, but overgrown in spots (see attached photo).
