end of the trail was washed out, had to double back to the 328 off trail but a great easy trail. majority of it is a fire road with some minor ascents. tarbox pond isnt much to look at but carr is gorgeous.

Very disappointed in this trail. Trails are very poorly marked, there was broken glass everywhere on the trail. Many people with dogs off leash that were bothering my appropriately leashed dogs. Very highly trafficked, no time for a quiet moment.

Its very pretty, with lots of little breakoff trails to the water. Only caution is many dogs off leash which can be nerve wracking. Ive ducked and dodged with my own on leash dog several times because of off leash dogs who seemed to not have much training. If its a concern Id say off season or during the week to avoid the bulk of traffic. At least directly around the pond. Its a very nice hike and even during the peak of bug season I didnt have many problems.

Walked with my two dogs to the pond. As you can see from my photo there is a mud and stick dam. It was leaking and ready to burst. If it had let go me and my dogs would have been swept away. My 20 lb dog would not have serviced. I will never go back. The leaking mud stick dam is not visible until you are right in front of it. Scary, stay away!
