The trail was pretty okay, my 5 year old had no problem with the terrain. However there were a lot of downed trees.

After deciding not to add to the collection of sedans struck in the mud and snow on the way to Max Patch, we parked off the road and hiked here at Cherry Creek. The trail has some nice creekside hiking, no views, and multiple downed trees across the trail with some sections of the trail down to four inches wide. The valley was nice with the snow accumulation and the number of laurels will put on a good show in spring, but I doubt this is a trail I'd enjoy summer or fall.

First to Review

I would only do the first half of this trail. Second half has too many downed trees (some very challenging to get through/around) and not enough creek views to make it worth it. Beautiful spots right at the beginning though.
