The sections of the "Trace" trail - the white-blazed trail - that cross the clear-cut have been blazed with 3-4 foot tall stakes marked with white blazes. The trail is continuous from Boling Park past Huckleberry Hill, down to Rock Creek. The "Trace" trail - the white-blazed trail - has been restored. Clear-cutting has made it more difficult to find the beginning of the trail at the church, but the trail has been restored. To find the white-blazed and green-blazed trails from the church look for pink markers set back into the clear-cut, about 50 yards from the opening at the gate. (If the church gate is six o'clock, the pink markers are at one o'clock.) Access to the white-blazed (and green-blazed) trail that will lead you back to Boling park is on the left side of the open area, at around 9:00. Access is marked with a white blaze on a small pine tree and orange markers. The white-blazed trail goes to Huckleberry Hill, where it opens into another clear-cut area. Efforts have been made to blaze the trail through the clear-cut, and reconnect it to parts of the trail that haven't been clear-cut. Look for stumps with white blazes on them. Alternatively, the state forestry service plowed a rudimentary fire break in the area. Once you reach Huckleberry Hill you can access the remainder of the white trail by following the fire break to the left and down the hill. The white-blazed trail reappears at the bottom of the hill. Look for a cairn and white-blazing on the trees. Trail restoration in this area is ongoing.

No trespassing signs posted where trail is supposed to start. Timber harvesting due to pine bark beetles has destroyed the woods in this area.

I took the opportunity to go and find the spot where I accidentally spent the night January last year.

Lots of past rain has water levels high. Two parts of the fast end of white trail under water. I skirted the first then detoured around the other. Then I came across the clear cutting. Couldn't identify where the trails ran any longer. Tried following with all trails open on my phone but had little luck. One spot they had actually dropped all off the cut trees across the trail on purpose. Came back to the starting point and wanted to get some more miles in so went back toward the high school where the first bridge I came to was flooded and decided to come back to the church parking lot. Don't get me wrong I love this trail I'm just talking about the current conditions.
