Trail is overgrown and not taken care of. You lose track at a pile of rocks. Make sure to wear pants and waterproof shoes as you have to cross the creek to continue. Or play hopscotch on some of the rocks in the creek.

We were unable to drive to the trail head - We had to walk about .75 of a mile via dirt road.

Trail was easy to follow, though very over grown by tall grass and lined with a lot of wild raspberries. Hiking pants would have been preferred over shorts.

The sound of the water in the creek was very enjoyable- the increase of bugs? Not so much!

It appeared the last bit of the hike may have been scrambling up some rocks. We chose not to continue and turned around shy of the dead end. The part of the trail we completed, we called easy, not moderate.
