HikingGreat!

The Scorpion volunteer trail crew cleared this trail. The entire loop is now cleared.

I’m sure this trail is great when cleared, but it was impassable after about 1/4 mile. Tons of downed trees and trail disappeared into bramble bushes. Date hiked was roughly June 17, 2020

beautiful area but too many down trees and it became an obstacle course instead of a hike. we turned around after .25 miles (which took 20 minutes).

First to Review

Inside the Rujada campground is the Swordfern 2 mile loop trail that parallels Laying Creek. We weren't quite sure if we were on the loop trail and only hiked about half the loop before returning the way we came. That's what happens when you don't carry a map. Turns out we were on track the entire time. Nice little trek through the forest. Many ferns and wildflowers this time of year.
