This trail is great if you can't or don't want to complete the whole trail. You can do a 3-miler which loops back to your car or the same with a 7-miler.

Great trail. Well-marked. May have some muddy spots and Creek crossings when wet. Beautiful old and new growth. We did the East part of the loop. Nice for kids (we took a toddler and an 8 yr old), but also some good elevation changes.

Great trail. Gravel base. Nice hills. Marked well.

Nice trail which was well marked and easy to follow. The trail itself was a bit chewed up but you should expect that on a horse trail. Found a nice overnight camp site for hammocking.

Nice trail that isn't technical. Has a few good hills. Watch your step as it's a horse trail as well. Beautiful open meadows with tall grasses and flowers in the spring/summer. Has a campground with restroom. No water on trail when I've done it...dry creek beds.
