We used this trail to access the conasagua river trail - we were short on time and running a shuttle. In hindsight, I wish we would have just run the shuttle to the north terminus of the CRT because this trail was BORING! The first half mile is slogging up a hill thorough a trail overgrown with briar, then the next 2.5 mils are relentless downhill to the conasagua river basin. Not much to see, overgrown, and the last half mile of trail was hit hard by fires. We actually lost the trail in the burn area, so we bushwacked our way down to the river. There was one small spring for filtering water about halfway down the trail, we did not notice any good sites for tent camping, but one could string up a hammock in plenty of places.
