Hike down a horse trail, quite damp although it hadn't rained recently. Made for some nice mushrooms growing and seedlings sprouting up everywhere. A small stream runs alongside it for most of the hike. Ends at a private road.

Visited on a beautiful summer Saturday and not a single other person was on the trail the entire time. Starts narrow with little rocks and then widens and mellows. Beautiful stream parallels the trail about halfway down. Just past the little bridge at the end to the left was a little double two foot falls into a little pool, maybe 18 inches deep. We lounged on the rocks and dipped into the pool. Cold water. Fun hike! No waterfalls or springs as marked.

This has a tag for hot springs but it doesn’t mention them in the description. Does anyone know if there is hot springs there?

Nice secluded trail. Damp, so lots growing, but I imagine it gets very muddy if it rains.
