This is volunteer maintenance only, so usually this trail is in rough shape. It's a shame it's my favorite close by trail. Usually grown up weeds along the trail and a lotta spider webs but they don't seem to bite.

Access Info

The trail is in the parking lot on the right in defeated creeks park area right before the rv entrance to the campgrounds it's clearly labeled after you pull in to park
