Great for kids and beginners because there is no hiking over the hills. The trail is very well worn and easily identified. There were many people hiking and some camping along the trail. Parking at the southern end requires a $5 parking fee. When starting at the southern end of the trail do not cross the wooden bridge connecting the 2 parking lots. The southern end of the trail starts at the first parking lot and crosses under the large concrete bridge to the right. The trail follows the creek with beautiful views of the water. There are many rock outcroppings with several rock over hangs with water falls. There is a popular part of the trail called fat man's squeeze - a section of the trail that goes through a rock fall creating a short "cave" section. Large packs will have to be removed to navigate. There are no official permanent campsites. There were many well-worn campsites that could be seen all along the trail. The north end of the trails ends at an old road and bridge crossing over Borden Creek. You can park at both ends and hike one direction. However, the parking at the north end is not located at the north end of the trail. Parking is approximately 0.5 miles up the hill along the closed paved road.Show more
