Very nice, smooth, late afternoon, it took us 3.55 hr, we walked 5.6 M. A lot of stops for taking pictures. River at the end has nice resting place.

Pretty trail that has a beautiful creek at the end. Been on it 3 times and enjoy it each time.

Unable to complete. Start even. Hunting season, and I was suggested by a hunter to wear some orange. Appreciated the heads up, but bummer to not be able to hike.

The old road bed has been cleared and now joins the main parking area to the smaller parking to the East. Small directional signs are in place until the permanent ones can be installed.

Trail just stopped when looping back. Ran into a big briar patch trying to find the trail using the map. I eventually found it scratched up a bit but no worse for wear.

Other than a few places that were very narrow the trail was very good. I would recommend it.

Sucks. Old road is hard to find. Road walking for a while. Not fun.
