Had a great time on this trail today. I'm not sure if it's the time of year or the weather but mosquitos were a problem. Looking forward to doing it again in the fall.

I think timing is key with this trail. The weather definitely effected us. It rained unexpectedly the night before so the bugs were awful. The woods are a wonderful sight, but the entire 3 miles we were engulfed by an enormous swarm of mosquitos and it made the hike miserable and it caused us to not pay as much attention to the beautiful sights around us. Bring lots of bug spray! We also went the last week of May which as I said: timing is key. We would LOVE to go back in the fall!

Beautiful winter time hike! Would recommend wearing snowshoes though. We went without and did fine but only because the trail had been beaten down a bit by previous hikers.

beautiful trail with lots of wildlife, be aware that there is some very wet boggy parts near the second river crossing, we had a tough time making it through in our hiking shoes (did not wear our boots or we would have been fine)

Mostly awesome, however a few fairly wet mushy spots near river.
