Beautiful trail! Sadly, it’s closed about a mile in due what appears to have been a huge rock slide knocking out multiple sections of the trail and making them impassable. There doesn’t appear to be any construction attempting to repair the trail. Realistically, it’ll probably take months for the full trail to be passable again

Busy trail. We were expecting a 12 mile out and back but most of the trail is closed due to construction. It turned out to be approximately 2.8miles there and back. Cool rock structures and a running stream!

First to Review

Great trail, but a lot of traffic when I went. Way too many people (with their stench of synthetic fragrances you can smell from far away) in the first mile or two but further in is really beautiful
