This trail is an easy hike and pretty in the fall. As a hiker I avoid most of the trails on the west side of the park during Spring and Summer, because of heavy horse traffic making the trails mud holes. This trail, however, is wide (it doubles as a service road) and so it's not as beaten by horses.

Nice walk, wide gravel road/path. I added a couple of pictures. You can't tell by looking but the one shows a deep area where the water runs into the caves, I assume.

this is an old gravel road, easy walk and if you go to the Bluffs campground at the end, you will find a small waterfall, it is just a trickle now but in the spring it is nice!

Pretty much just a connector trail to Sal Hollow, Turnhole Bend.
