Nice flow, some upkeep needed on wooden crossings and trail could be marked a little better but overall an enjoyable ride-

A great hike on a beautiful day. I did lose track of markers for awhile on the return loop but map was a great help.

Beautiful area! I would call this an easy hike though, not moderate. The trails are not well marked, so it's easy to get off the main trail, but there is awesome scenery around so what's not to love. Hikers: Be cautious of mountain bikers. The trails are narrow and I almost got taken out by a few bikers shooting around blind corner. Mountain bikers: keep an eye out for hikers and be mindful of controlling speed around corners.
