This is a great trail! Beautiful scenery and points of interest. Backcountry sites were very nice. The trail is well marked and in great shape. We hiked in May and had plenty of water sources. Well worth the time to complete!

Not really "hiking", but an easy walk on flat, wide trails. Mostly shaded. Lots of pretty moss-covered trees; very scenic. Good spot for photography or trail running.

Easy trail, with some slight ups and downs. Heavily trafficked in June. We took this trail in combination with trails 4, 5, and 8, to make for a good 3-hour walk.

Great trail. Only had a few fellow hikers a long the way. Well maintained. I would highly recommend.

Nicely maintained trail. Would rate at moderate difficulty. Has a large parking lot and there is good signage.

The trail on the app says 5.2 miles. But following the signs it was 6.5. App needs updated. Signs did need some updating, but over all wasn't to bad, pretty weedy as well. So bring your bug spray for sure.
