Very pretty and lush. However it was so so muddy. That’s the only reason I can’t give five stars. Not just mud but like full on swamp that is hard to cross. Lots of up and down which i liked, and very quiet. If you don’t mind some moisture then this is a great trail!

This is more of a moderate trail. Starting out on the orange trail was really cool with long foot bridges taking you over the marsh, and most of it in a tunnel of trees and brush. Lots of large boulders to sit in the shade and picnic on. The green trail offered challenges of rock steps over streams and muddy areas after the rains. If taking smaller kids, you may have to carry them at times. Lots of uphill grades during the return on the green trail. I’d do this again.

Loved loved loved this hike. We have done it twice in the last month. We are on a quest to do 100 hikes. This was #13 and my kids constantly ask to do #13 again. It was quite muddy and I would 100% recommend using the app gps to make sure you are going the right way, but it was great.

Swampy, especially after it’s rained. A lot of ups and downs, but I’d say one of the best hikes in the area!!
