Nice trail, easy to navigate. Lots of birds, loved the sound of the stream through out most of the trail. Was the only hikers at the time.

Yes, 1 mile drive in to trailhead. Recommend 4 wheel drive w/ loose stone. Trailhead leaves two choices, two miles on Grape Smuggler Trail or 5 mile Gobbler Trail. We did the Grape Smuggler as it’s raining. Great easy trail with some nice creek views. Lots of water as we’re 10” above normal precipitation. Will be back for the Gobbler.

Be prepared to drive a mile up the hill, to get to parking lot. Once there, you can take the 2 or 5 mile loop. Paths are well-packed and clean...nice moderate trail. Pretty water features, and not too difficult - folks with dogs on path too.
