Trail begins across the forest road from the parking lot. Easy hike shared with horses and bikes with a few views along the way. Fairly well maintained but some muddy spots.

This is a great trail. Lots of horses on this so yes lots of poop. lovely pinic area ontop and place for the horses too.

It's hard to enjoy this hike when one has to repeatedly sidestep heaps and heaps of horse droppings scattered throughout this dusty trail.

Easy hike overall, I would recommend to anyone who is looking to get themselves and/or their family some fresh air outside. The ridge got muddy when it rained but the trail is mostly shaded by the tree canopies. Limited views of surrounding areas. There was plenty of signs to guide us through all the different forks. My group saw lots of varying wild flowers, snails, and slugs. Not crowded for a weekend so it was nice and quiet for the most part. I could easily do this hike again with friends!

Easy hike to the ridge; not much to see except a few breaks in the trees of some nice fall color. Quite a few riders use this trail so frequent horse droppings to side step. Very peaceful due to light travel.
