Halfway through the Caldwell/fire tower trail and the trail just stops, completely lost to logging in the area; other 2 trails were decent but not marked at all.

sadly on Sunday April 23rd we were told trail unavailable as it was being logged. We did hike a 1.6 mile trail. You get trail head across street from camp store. take road back by campsite #48. you can add on a other .5 mile connector trail. great campground. walk in sites or Reservable sites. Beautiful wildflowers today.

Really fun. Some parts of the trail were a little narrow, but all in all a great hike.
