This is a nice easy trail with stunning scenery. Nice fall colors on 10/10/22, but not quite at the peak yet. Not wheeling but definitely a must-do in the area.

Reopened in August. Currently open. In very good condition; unaffected by the recent fires. We ran the loop for mushrooming. The lobsters were already picked over.
