Nice trail though poorly marked in spots. Useful to run the AllTrails app to keep track of position and make sure you take the right turns (there are quite a few). Fairly flat with a few moderate short uphills and a few large rocks to climb over or around. Some simple plank bridges over wet areas. Medium sized parking lot off 85 just north of 101 marked with wooden Oakland Forest sign. I would call this more of a loop trail than an out and back since there are a couple options for doing various distance loops depending on which turns you take. I did a 5.5 mile loop basically following the AllTrails map with a few shortcuts. Great for hiking, mountain biking and dog walking.

Nice place to hike with the dogs. Lots of area to hike. Our short hike ended up a 3 hour mission to find our way out. The trails are not marked very well! No matter what trail your on it always says red and when you reach a split off the red trails go in 4 different directions. I would go again but next time be prepared to be in there for awhile. They need to mark the trails better.

Great trail to get out on in the morning, gets noisy from the highway but overall great trail.

This was a bit rough. Lots of turn offs if you aren't using a map app. Web map claims 5 miles which my wife and I didn't believe for a minute. Not a very scenic trail but it's a good workout
