I grew up here. I camped recently and found the pond had been sold and now private and there are no more coyotes. 5 stars because it is my childhood home and a great safe place to camp for the night without being bothered.

This is just a forest service road. It's an easy walk down with a few offshoot trails and nice valley views. It'd be a great mountain bike or dirt bike descent. Instead of going back up the road I cut up the slope which was about 30 minutes shorter. Very little wildlife (in fall) but also very few humans. Occasional Verizon signal.

Nice views but no shade. Probably better in early spring or fall.
