This trail is a great next step up from dead easy trails. A little bit of elevation gain, but not relentless. It follows a lovely creek, then veers away into forests that change as you increase elevation. Note that as of this writing, there is a claim of bear activity that has the spur trail to White Oaks Sinks area ... in reality, it is BOAR that are the problem right now. We did observe some evidence of boar digging along side of the trail. Note that generally this trail is a really good all seasons trail.
