rough trail not a good beginner trail, I stayed overnight it was ok but one of the trail signs fell over and I hiked 2 miles in the wrong direction.. that's when I downloaded this app. Also i was picking ticks off me and my dog for over month every inch of you will be covered.

Great overnight hike. Started in reverse along the bridle trail then overnight at camp 6. Didn’t see any other people. The big hill at the end of the return was tough!

This particular path was very pretty, and not really challenging to follow or navigate excluding length and elevation gain. Part of the trail is on a forest access road however, and not a normal trail.

Great trail with several panoramic views of the valleys. The creek was beautiful and had lots of skipping stones. Not too strenuous, only one big hike up and another big hike down.

First to Review

This was a great day hike! Plenty of enjoyable hiking along the creek, and camp #6 would be a nice spot for lunch if you had the time. Lots of moderate walking, so the entire trail is not too difficult outside of the couple of hill climbs. Take a look at the elevations and determine how you might want to tackle this loop.
