Walks along Choke Creek, with six or seven different campsites, some with pretty creek views. Very popular in the summer.

I followed the loop going counter clock-wise. The trail was very narrow and overgrown for about half of it. Navigating was a tad difficult at times Once you get past choke creek, things start to open up a lot more. Campsites are very plentiful. You'll run into at least one every 10 - 30 minutes or so; especially on the creek. The scenery changed quite a bit from dense forest to flower and fern fields. Elevation change was minimal. If the trail wasn't this overgrown, I'd give this maybe a 4 out of 5.
