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.

An excellent trail with beautiful forest, boulders, and many little streams. It is a rugged trail, with hardly any smooth flat paths, which I think is a good thing because it makes it less populous. My two dogs and I only saw one person all day. On the down side, someone broke a $200 window on my truck to steal $5 in pennies out of my ashtray.
