Miles Hiked: 4.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A


I didn't expect much but it was great!  It is a well marked loop, and solitude for a trail so close to town?  We only saw one family there on a sunday afternoon on the whole loop.  It rained pretty hard yesterday so the entire loop was muddy.  No big wet mud holes, just the trail itself is muddy.  Lots of bridges so very crossable.  Was completely out of breath from the ups and downs.    The duck blind spur wasnt worth it: all the elevation and not much to see.
