Three mile trail is much longer than depicted. and is easy until about 3 to 3.5 mile mark when it gets more rocky and steeper.
On a Sunday In late June and there were considerable wildflowers including Columbines and just a few other parties along the trail. Well maintained trail and several creek crossings beyond the 1.5 mile mark. Downside is there is really no destination you just go until you either hit the intersecting trails or until you get tired.

What a magical hike in this morning's weather! Trail is in good shape until around 10k'. We turned around at that point due to snowpack and loss of trail. Nice few hours in the woods, and even enjoyed lunch in the warm sun. Dogs loved all the water.

Beautiful trail, quiet for being close to the road
