This trail is 1.1 miles one way (round trip of 2.2 miles. The trail is straight and relatively flat, making for an easy and pleasant hike. This trail starts out as the E - Old Bridge trail. About halfway through the trail, you will encounter Marshall Creek. There is an old bridge crossing it, where you can see a beaver dam. The trail bends and turns into the D - Sunrise Bay trail. This trail will lead you past a bay, which is mostly dried up now. There may be some water or mud here if it has rained recently. This area has a great sunrise view, where you could watch the sun rise over the bay. The trail comes to an end at another parking lot. You could end your trek here (if you have a car parked in that lot) or you could double back and return the same way to return to the parking lot at the trail head.
