How did we end up on this trail? Well, Chores came first and then we were in need of long hike after that we could get in before the sun went down, plus the name of the trail sounded great. :) Once we had the gps directions we knew we had been there before, or at least we thought we had until the GPS took us on the road past it. FYI follow the brown road sign clearly marked for this trail and not the GPS. The trail head is a different story, it is not marked. Trust the check in point & if you have a mountain bike enjoy the ride & if your hiking enjoy that too. We travelled clockwise and once we got to the water the trail was quite beautiful. The giant Hemlocks were impressively tall. Just a little after half way as we came out to the dirt road, I realized that we had been on part of that trail before enjoying the refreshing waterfall. Today was definitely not the day for that, so we continued up the dirt road and reentered the trail where it is actually marked.. :) and enjoyed the rest of our switchbacks and uphill climb. Not sure if this is a busy trail once it becomes warm, but today we had the entire trail to ourselves.
