I love this trail. The brook next to the trail gives the perfect amount of noise. No parts that are to steep. This trail is an old track the mines used.

Great out and back trail, (little over 5 mi) stream running next to most of the trail, at the end of the trail you can walk on a gravel rd about another 1 and a half mile to get to Dalton lake. popular place for 4 wheelers.
