Not quite as advertised. I enjoyed the trail but it was considerably more difficult than I expected. Several wide sections were completely flooded and required a lot of bog walking in deep mud and shallow water. The trail is clearly unkept and appeared to not have been worked on in any serious way for several years. many many downed trees block the trail in many spots. I expected a stroll in the park but got a hard slog in the muck. Loads of fun but not what I was expecting so beware.

Very pretty trail. Be sure to wear water proof shoes. Less than half of the needed bridges are usable. This trail is in bad need of repair.
