This trail passes through mostly old growth forest and has some extremely large oak trees along the way. The right portion of the figure eight as mapped by this app is easy to follow. The left portion of the figure eight as mapped is almost nonexistent in some parts and evidently no longer used or maintained.

Other than a light path for about 200 yards there is no longer a discernible trail. It appears that some restoration efforts are being made from the charred undergrowth. Hopefully, a new trail will be blazed in the future.

Not accessible anymore, at least not the rock area. Fenced off because it’s privately owned

Unremarkable. Just a walk through upland forest.

Nice primitive no fee campground. I suspect always full in the summer. It s a trail head for the nice 1/2 mile boy scout created trail, but also the larger Cedar Creek trailhead.

Great host and nice camp. Underutilized trail.

Nice short hike for a rainy day

There is a camp host now at Pine Ridge. Been there MANY times. Had a drunk that was at the camp host area come up yelling at me in the middle of the night because he thought I got too close to his tent. I hadn't noticed it until a minute before and was getting away from it. I was verbally abused,sworn at, threatened then the host told me I couldn't go to the rest room that there are many places I could use. (In the bushes). I was very frightened and stayed up most of the night. Otherwise it's a good campsite.

This is a nice little trail for almost any time of the year. The majority of this trail winds back and forth through the trees until arriving at a creek. The trail crosses a cow pasture or two but those are very short and marked with metal gates. Once across the creek, the trail follows the road for a short distance before starting back into the trees. A few miles after this, you will arrive at Dry Fork. Past Dry Fork, the trail continues down the unpaved road. There are plenty of nice places to camp in between the two campsites. Horses do occasionally come through and many of the hills that lead down to water sources have been washed out or are slow to dry out and muddy. Still, a nice little trail and an easy dayhike.

Well maintained campground, great scenery around the area. I've camped here a number of times, both with Scouts and on my own. Gets you out in nature yet close to civilization.

My experience is that it is really busy. Many times every spot in the campground is taken.

If you would like some more seclusion, try Dry Fork campground down the road. Still part of the national forest, just a little more secluded and peaceful.

Great place for hiking! Peaceful and just the sounds of nature could be heard.
