First to Review

This trail is a series of old forest service roads, some of which were overgrown and barely visible. We got lost twice, where the trail would diverge from the forest service roads. Near the end of the hike, the trail was completely lost, so we had to take the overgrown Forest Service Road 098 back to Forest Service Road 082. We did not see any wildlife, expect for a couple of squirrels. There were also no views from the trail. It was basically a dirt road with tall, dense trees on either side. If you do not have a phone on you with service or a GPS, you will get completely lost. I do not recommend this trail to anyone!
