We decided to walk back to the trailhead from where wildlife trail meets the forest road. even with a long road walk, the trail was very relaxing. not alot of elevation, but the tricky parts were how muddy parts of the trail were, and the rattlesnakes. we came across 3! wear shoes you dont mind getting wet and watch for the snakes. the cliffs are a beautiful lunch stop and there are some pretty meadows to camp along the trail. we had a sunny warm day for this hike which felt ideal. would be a more challenging day if it was wet or very windy.
