Hiked this trail for an overnight camping trip with co-workers from work. Trail is well maintained, with road and gravel sections. Camp ground was very nice and the hike was ok. Once we got set up in camp we spent the afternoon exploring the area and nearby creek. Lots of horse traffic on the trail - causing a few muddy patches but most of the horse riders were considerate to us as we always stepped off the trail for the approaching horses. The campground has horse tie outs, one tent pad and an installed fire ring. There was plenty of nearby downed wood for the night's fire and the nearby creek had good filtered water. All in all it was an enjoyable weekend but there are better trails with better scenery nearby.

There were lots of muddy spots to traverse. We were hoping for a trail that looped. Sadly, this was not one of them.

. It is a gravel road. Easy stroll. Look out for horses.

This is a gravel road. Beautiful forest though. It does lead to a nice campsite.
