Lovely trail off the Short Archery in Hereford. Lots of elevation change with long stretches near the creek

Nice hike. Gotta little off course at that big random parking lot but found my way.

Nice trail. Needs to be marked more clearly though!!
We ended up off trail and "lost" for quite a bit of time.Thankfully we could hear the traffic on 83 so it helped us know what direction to walk.

Great workout in the woods. Approximately 2 hours. At some locations, all you could hear was the forest and the gurgling stream. Therapeutic!

Great little hike. We stepped off around 10:30am on a beautiful, late summer day and were surprised by how few others we passed. The trail offers a good mix of scenery, elevation gains followed by stretches of flat trail.. we even came across a herd of cattle near the end. Not sure where we lost the extra .5mi (description mentions 4.4mi, we did 3.9) as I don't think we took any shortcuts, but it didn't matter. We were content at the end :)
