To clarify a good place to start on the trail: Follow Mercer Lake Rd along the lake until it becomes Mercer View Dr. Take Twin Fawn Dr which forks off to the left. There is a sign that says no turnaround, but ignore that. Follow Twin Fawn Dr until the end where there is a turnaround (for cars, not long RVs) and parking for the trail. On 9/6/17 it was a fine trail with no obstacles (and lots of ripe berries). It was mowed grass and in the sun for the first 0.5 miles, then the trail crossed a bridge and went into a cool arch of trees.

Muddy as all hell, and don't forget the insect repellent. Fair bit of fallen tree branches (not simple logs, like big messes of branches like from a storm) and a few creeks that were not crossable without getting in ankle-deep. Despite all that, I liked the area, I'd just like to see it maybe during a better time of year and with without the obstacles, lol.

Very easy hike! Really beautiful and lots of wildlife along with beautiful mushrooms in the fall.

I took 3 dogs and my mother who has mobility issues. It was tough for her and a breeze for myself. Gorgeous views, lots of different kinds of mushrooms if you're there during the right time of year. Tons of wildlife which was lovely.

The trail doesn't actually start when the map says it does. You have to keep driving up that hill, when it forks take a left and you are there. The only bad thing about the hike was finding it.

Good short trail that follows a stream then cuts over and follows the edge of the forest.
