Trail Notes: There are several water crossings and some muddy patches, so please ensure you're wearing proper shoes. Since this is a relatively hilly hike, I recommend bringing snacks and extra water (especially if the weather is warm). I estimate the hike will take us about 3-4 hours with stopping to break a few times as needed.
