What a joke! No trail markings. No way to cross the creek (4 times) without being an acrobat or getting your feet wet. A truly lackluster trail. The shell of the old building with the fireplaces was cool, but really not worth the effort

Fun trail is you are looking to play. Can' t get in a long distance, but fun to explore. Water was flowing so creek crossings were high and unavoidable. Only one on the trail... cold!

What wasn't explained is to get to the "Y" at the beginning of the trail you have to cross a creek. on this day (1/6/19), having rained heavily the day before and me hiking alone, I wasn't willing to attempt crossing it. I will come back another day !!

As others mentioned there's stream crossings. Be mindful of the weather and current rainfall as many trail parts show water runoff. Not sure on the normal water levels- went after recent rainfall during September and the stream was about 1'+ high depending where I crossed. There's a second unmapped trail with no water crossings but its uphill and gets overgrown in places.

Update: went back after a couple days of no rain and the water levels had a noticeable drop. If you don't want to use a map, the trail basically follows the water upstream. The "ruins" are a halfway point with a small waterfall near the end.

Beautiful trail along the creek, be prepared for the crossings though!
We had hikers from 8-46 and no trouble navigating the trail.

Moderate is an understatement. This is tough terrain.

Nice trail by water. You have to cross the creek 4 times so your feet will get wet. Ruins were cool!There was a lot of mosquitoes.... bring the off with you on the hike!

Nice trail. 4 or 5 stream crossings. Starts with a deep dive into a little valley to the stream. Follow along for maybe a half mile then start the climb. I was hoping for a nice open view at the top but didn't find one.

Hiked back as far as where you would have to climb boulders in the stream. We weren't able to safely cross so we turned back. Overall it was a good hike. Beautiful scenery. We went off the trail at one point because the trail continued in front of us but it was very difficult to see. There was a very clearly marked trail across the stream up a hill.

Had to go throw 3 rivers just to find out that the trail abruptly ends. Followed the route on the map this app offered. Nothing marked. Never again.

Rocky trails, be prepared to scramble in places. Not really for all levels, more like moderate difficulty. Saw evidence of bears. Tricky hiking in the fall with all the leaves covering the path

Really nice hike. Just be sure to go down the hill from the parking lot. Abandoned stuff is really cool to see.

Beautiful place! No trail markings so it could be easy to get lost and you cross water about four times along the paths. We only found one ruin, there's supposed to be several throughout the woods here.

Walk downhill from parking and you'll hit the stream. Go upstream and you'll eventually hit the ruins of a ski lodge. If you like old ruins this is a great hike! The multiple crossings are almost impossible not to get wet though.
