This is a great, forested ramble for you and your dogs. You’ll want to visit the swamp during the wet seasons to really enjoy all it has to offer—though you might end with a muddy pup, you’ll find the benefits outweigh that minor complication. For instance, if you head out during the winter waterfowl migration, you might find a rare treat: wood ducks in the marshy areas. But any time of year can be an adventure here, with abundant wild plants and animals to enjoy.

The middle-fork road is currently washed out only a few miles in, as of 3-25-2006, therby preventing access to this trail. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

Great trail. Starts out steep but levels off after a bit. Great scenery. Waterfalls, creek crossings and views of Mountain tops through out. A bit rugged as trails go. Waterproof boots are a must due to the high number of creek crossings. Hester Lake is postcard beautiful, well worth the hike. We saw 2 other people on the trail, but no one at the campsite at Hester Lake. The sites are nice and very near the lake.
