Ok trail... be prepared and wear long pants because 75% of the trail is stinging nettles on both sides that are really unavoidable. I wish I would have know this before I went. Also, tons of gnats and mosquitos. The steam crossings can get problematic, resulting in you being soaked from mid-thigh down. I’d rate it as easy, ended up being a little less than 3.5 miles and 430 ft elevation gain.

Went for a good evening walk and we couldn’t make it the whole way and back in a decent time so we didn’t make it to the end.

There’s a few moments when it’s difficult to cross the stream but it’s bearable. Pretty hike overall though!

No good places to take a seat and have lunch but we took a blanket and stopped for it.

Overall good hike, not the best in the area but not a bad day hike!

Awesome hike that follows a little stream. Did this hike in the spring so the water was flowing. Our tween-age kids did this and it was the perfect hike to give them a little challenge without being too much for them.
