The first 1.3 miles , this trail is a four wheel drive road. The trail follows the creek closely. After the second stream crossing the road is not drivable and gets much less use. There are some impressive rock formations along this shorter section that make for a very enjoyable hike. since it gets less use, this section is also harder to follow. None of the trail is marked.
This would be a refreshing hike in the summer with many opportunities to get your feet wet. In the winter and spring the water is higher and stream crossings are difficult to navigate without getting wet. The hike should take two to three hours to complete, round trip.
