Trail starts out easy at the parking lot growing more technical as you progress with several stretched of very technical roots and rocks in flat sections.. Several great views and good wildlife watching potential near the lakes

       Pretty muddy today. Might end up ruining the trail if we don’t wait for it to dry out.
