Easy hike to help train for more difficult hikes. This is a good place to train a dog as well.

Confusing, so many trail markers. Really need to follow the gps at the forks. Loop was steep going down and coming up. Good hike. About six miles. No views just lush forest. Old man trail, Whittaker, shy bear, and gombu then back.

4/23/2016 (Saturday) - Group 1:40 to 4:10, 1.5 hour up, 1 hour down, 5 miles, 60F, partly sunny. A cool and dry afternoon. Trails are in good condition, gentle grade. We first go down to Coal Creek Falls, where very little water, then move up to the Wilderness Peak with an elevation gain of 750 ft.

Uphill, that loose gravel almost killed me 4 times, but I blame that on my balance.
