Trail Overview

This easy out-and-back trail runs through the middle of the valley and appears to have been the fire line for the most recent big fire in the area. Burned to the South and East and lush to the Northwest. The mountain views are unbeatable as you twist your way along. There are a few marshy areas and plenty of little offshoots, some even without gates to explore further or find a perfect camping spot. The beginning of the trail is wider, with more options to pass oncoming. The further one travels, the more dense it becomes until you are finally in a thick forest with sounds of running water all around and mossy wetness hanging in the air. The trail's end is a dead end and doesn't seem to continue from there. The turnaround spot is tight, even for a medium-sized rig. Along the way, some sizable camping spots would make for a lovely evening, complete with a few bars of Verizon LTE cell service.

Difficulty

The narrow end of the trail and a tight turnaround. There are also some rocky climbs and deeper potholes filled with mud closer to the end. There is no winter maintenance, and you may have to clear deadfall after a storm or in the springtime.
