Great trail for a weekend backpacking trip. Did not enjoy the stretches that run along the side of roads, though hot open fields nor the proximity to the noisy freeway for a good chunk of trail. The trail frequently shared its route with seasonal roads, two-tracks and other trails making navigation slightly challenging at times. This was more than made up for by the great views along the southern portion of the trail by the creeks and the Manistee River as well as the Headquarters Lake area. Very good trail, highly recommend!.
