Fun creekside, backcountry trail. Numerous water crossings (the deep, rocky, wading type). Good trail for a hot day. Log after log after log across the trail (touch up on your bunny hopping skills). At some of the creek crossings, it is difficult to tell where the trail reemerges from the water. Goes by small dam on Bradley Creek. May be impassible in high water.

       This trail is not technically open and includes about 20 creek crossings you have to wade.
