easy 2hr hike. good att cell service :). makes for a nice running trail, mostly groomed.

This trail is more for mountain bikers. Much of the trail is gravel road.

Great moderate hike. Elevation is mild. Lots of the trails were wide and easy to walk on. Bikers use the trail but sharing safely was not a problem. Took 2.5 hours to do 6 miles. Lovely walk through the woods/forest.

Very few people, which is great. But nothing to make this trail too interesting- majority of the trail was a gravel road.

Nice gravel road for biking or hiking

Parking across the road from Horse camp entrance and trail head is right there to left of the entrance gate. Trail is blazed blue in trees at intersections. Starts to get a little steeper before you encounter the road. Turn right into road and it will bring you back down to the forest road, turn right again and it's about .25 mile or so back to trailhead. Nice, easy and very quiet. On the way back down on the road, there is a turn to the right that goes uphill, I did not explore where this leads but went up a little ways for some decent views. Enjoy!

Note watch out for Wash Creek trail on the left. It's easy to miss. Wash creek trail follows wash creek back to the dirt road for about 1/2 mile. Then turn left on dirt road to go back to the parking lot/kiosk.
