Nice trail but I got irritated with the poor mapping. Even talked to some employees that said some of the older side trails aren’t listed on the maps that All Trails has as well as online & the printed maps. Not a good idea if you ask me, especially someone who can’t figure out their directions (I don’t have a problem with this) Pay attention to your tree markers & you’ll be okay. If going with your dog bring water, there isn’t much on the trail, especially if it hasn’t rained recently.
