This is more of a road than a trail, but a very rough one. In good weather it took us over an hour from start to finish in a truck. It would be almost as fast to hike it. The road technically terminates at Moon Lake, but the last 150ft are very steep down to the bank. There's several camp sites once you get to the lake. 2-3 right down by the water, and several more up top before the road drop. We took a canoe out on the lake, but didn't see any fish.

I'd say this is a pretty good hike. Great views and great pay off at the end if you're camping. As I said, it's actually a road, but I would advise heavily against going on it unless you're into that sort of thing.
