I should have read the prior reviews. I planned a loop up Dry Creek trail and then down Phelps. Phelps Canyon trail was probably somewhat obscure before the fire 3-4 years ago. It is now completely gone and covered with numerous blowdowns. My 8.5 mile loop turned into a 12.5 mile slog when I decided the best course of action was to retrace my steps.

It is really pretty and should/could be a fantastic trail.

Avoid this trail until maintenance is done.
