Nice easy trail. If you don't mind narrow roads to the trailhead......Whiskey Bend Road is narrow so drive slow and take your time.

This was a great and easy day hike. If you keep going along the Dodger Point trail for a mile and a half or two past Hume's Ranch then you can make a stop at the scenic suspension bridge 1000 ft above the Elwah.
