Fairly easy ride. The trail to the Dam is mostly covered by trees so make sure its been warm for a while before going to avoid the snow that sticks around for a while in the early months of the year. There are some fun downhill sections with some climbing as well.

This is a fun little trail and it's a pretty good workout. There are a few things you should look out for though. It gets MUDDY, so don't go for a few days after it rains, and the trail is pretty hard to distinguish in places because of washout and fallen trees so make sure you really know where you are.

A fairly easy trail. The portion by Moody creek and the falls is on the green and shady side, and provides some nice single track.

Make sure if you're driving there you take the right road to the start of the trail head. our GPS told us we're were on the fastest route but it was not the best for a pickup truck, we eventually had to stop and hike to the trail head then realized there was a different road coming in and sent someone back for the truck. the trail is pretty obvious until you start the loop, if you go right at the fork and follow the power lines it leads to the edge of the mountain then there's a little opening into the trees on the mountain. I would recommend not going down that way there is not a set trail and I just had to follow my satellite compass with the trail map on the app. so at the fork (start of the loop it shows on the trail map) go left and it's a lot clearer easier path. and then come back up that way too.

Really fun hike, we bushwhacked back around the east end of the trail, back right before the last little canyon, got down to the river and there was a really cool waterfall and campsite, we went tried to go up to the main trail later by the waterfall and up a little ways there was a car, crashed right of the path. if you are looking for an easier hike you will want to turn left at the first junction. Really fun and enjoyable hike.

Took our 4wd vehicles down to the waterfall for a group activity. Easy driving, but it gets technical as you get closer - you'll want a spotter if you have a larger vehicle. I went in my Pathfinder and made it in and out without much trouble. Nice area for a gathering. Cows are common. There are some logs to cross over and get to the middle area where the creek splits and goes around you to a waterfall on either side.

We followed the directions given on the site. We stopped just short of the directions at a turnoff where a few vehicles were parked. From there you follow the huge power lines down to the dam, about 40 minute hike down. Some of the hills are very steep! I would go again but only if we drove an atv, razor or dirt bike just because the hills were pretty challenging. Once there the dam is very beautiful and there are ledges and boulders to sit on. There's a small grassy area to sit as well.

This is a pretty fun ride. Nice to get out there and stretch your legs. There are several hills that provide some fun descents. The climbs aren't too bad. We went pretty early in the year and there was still snow in the trail. I would wait until May at the earliest to go. The old dam at the bottom of the trail provides a great view worth seeing. Overall a fun trail.
