I chose this route as an alternative to one of the Pirhana trails since it is on the military base (**warning - unless you have a valid military ID, you can’t get anywhere near the trails on the base’s land; this isn’t clear in the listing).
Though the trail is nice and pleasant, a few drawbacks...
- Finding the trail and navigating the crossroads can be challenging, there are some faded printouts stapled to the tree.
- Because its right next to an airbase, there were frequent jets passing by. Although it wasn’t terrible, it did break up the silence.
- I’m not sure when the last rain was, however there were a few sections of the trail that were completely flooded.
