This area was a homeless community . I’ve never hiked back there but have been there to feed the people who lived there. The people there built themselves some really cool little houses out of wood or cardboard, they used anything they could find. The residents had their little homes decorated with discarded satellite dishes, plastic flamingos etc. some of the people were really artistic. They were proud of their homes and even invited us in to see them. I didn’t realized the homeless people had moved. I guess that is the reason there is so much trash there.

So much garbage getting down the road. Trail was flooded and impassable. Could not get further than the big tree with swing.

As others said, the trail ends after about .25 miles. The drive in is also essentially a garbage dump. It would be a nice trail if someone took the time to clean it up

Not very well marked at all. I followed what I thought was the trail and ended up only completing about half of it

After reading the reviews I wanted to check it out for myself. Unfortunately, everyone is spot on about this trial. It's over grown, and not well maintained. The trail disappears after 0.25 in. This places has a lot of potential to be a nice place, if they cared about it. Also, on the drive in, there is a lot of trash and old furniture on the side of the road. which might discourage people from wanting to continue. 9 -15 -2019

I could not think of a worse trail for even walking on. The first .25 mile is totally fine, but then it just vanishes into thick grass and thorn bushes galore. I attempted to bike through it, following the trail my dog was mapping out for me, and my legs were shredded by the tall plants with mysterious spikes. I went through probably 6 spider webs. The trail was so horribly kept up. Honestly, Im not even sure I was on the trail. I ended up at a gravel road where a lady screamed at me and a man on a tractor rode by. I tried to find the trail but ended up having to go back through that god awful overgrown trail. I couldnt even bike back, i had to push my bike because my pedals kept getting stuck on the plants. My legs are really torn up, but at least my dogs had fun I guess.

The trail was hard to find so we will need to go back on a cooler day but we saw lots of wild flowers and moths. Beautiful area next to an industrial site. Never would have known it was there without All Trails. Kids got hot so we had to turn back but not before we got some pictures on the hanging swing.

easy Trail to find. It's right off the road. However the trail itself is not very well marked. we got lost a little bit, the trail is not used very often and therefore we saw a lot more Wildlife than a well-worn trail. I would rate the trail a three and a half. However our dog would rate it about a four and a half. very private, lots of little animals to chase. there's a swing and a picnic bench at the beginning of the trailhead which would be very nice romantic afternoon if you're with someone other than your dog

Trail is very difficult to follow. Most trail markers are gone, down or overgrown. A seldom used trail giving much solitude. I saw many bird spices, wildflowers, insects and even some deer. It's good enough for me to visit again during all seasons. Don't forget your camera and binoculars. I rate this trail 3 stars. Submitted by RFW
