Went in April 2015 and it wasn't very well maintained or marked. Perhaps they will perform maintenance later in the season as there was still a lot of runoff and the trail was rather swampy. Small bridge across Jennings Creek was flooded with no safe crossing within a short walk - had to take boots off and wade across.
