Flat open trail for the first half with more rocky steep areas in the second half. I usually combine the red trail and white trail to create a longer loop.

$5 parking. Plenty of parking. Theres two other trails as you can see so try and find the right one or go get lost haha. This one was cool. Different little routes within it. You get to see some water! Seen about two different kinds of snakes. Saw some history. Easy walk.

Sweetwater is freaking awesome if you like anything to do with rivers or creeks. You can walk right alongside the water and climb all over rocks. Your also able to jump in anywhere if your brave enough. Definitely recommend going after heavy rainfall.

Easy to get lost but in the end everything connects . I actually got lost through some type of flower field and ended up in a really sketchy secluded place with old abandoned cars and etc . So just pay attention !

Trail was quite busy, but it was a nice one. Easy hike, but it's fun stepping over all the rocks towards the end of the trail. The creek is nice.
