Lots of Maples leaves on the trail made it a beautiful and colorful walk. Saw two bald eagles.

Such a pretty little area. Not hard to get to at all, and gives some pretty good photo opportunities. Been here a couple times and would still go again. ❤️

Terrible, trail is a rocky creek bed, not marked, a lot of off road motorcycles- not fun, but a nice view next to the 7 cell phone towers.

nice trail for dog walking

You're walking in a working forest so you will see logging trucks and equipment going by. Capital Forest is a great area for 4X4s and such but not so much for hiking.
