I've hiked/ran this and the connecting trails a few times now. The first leg is 5.3 miles, leading to Lake Airey. There is a restroom there and a pump for clean, drinkable water. If you continue on to the other trails by following the white markers, the mile markers will keep counting up until you reach mile 12, shortly after which you'll make the split to go to Pow Lake (~12.5 mi) or Bethel Road (~13 mi). The trail is poorly kept from mile marker 11 to where the trail splits. Over all it's an easy hike- very flat and only a few streams so cross without a bridge of sorts. Lots of good views, need to watch out for the horse poop though. I definitely recommend stopping at Pow Lake. It's gorgeous.

Very well maintained trail. It was about 5.6 miles from 49 to the Airey Lake Campground, so just about 11 miles and change round trip. The campground at the lake is small and quiet. Will definitely have to come back to either hike thru and camp while on the way to the POW camp. Around mile 4 the bridge was out but was easily cross able via a near by downed tree.

Very well marked, cleared path. Not terribly scenic from where I started at Hwy 49, but I suspect the terrain improved further along. I was only able to go part of the way as my canine companion is elderly, but I found it enjoyable. Despite the recent rains, the path was dry, with some swampy areas on either side.
