Nothing on this trail for the hiker other than a long walk to nothing. The trail is not worth the time, effort or danger. This trails characteristics combine for the worst of everything. For the novice or beginner it is too isolated from anywhere for help to reach you once you get started. For the experienced hiker you will find the trail much too close to civilization. This trail has 2 good points; it’s well maintained and easy. However, the trail is narrow and isolated from road bound lateral assistance. This leads to the bad points, and they are numerous; 1 – mountain bikes, the trail is NARROW, hike at you own risk. You will get run over; 2 – there is NOTHING to see on this trail. The trail winds through a low land flood plain with THICK vegetation. In the summer the insects will eat you alive. Spend your time better and go somewhere else; 3 – The bench at the turn around offers the only view on the hike and not much of a view at that; 4 – hikers will never escape the sound of planes, trains and automobiles. Hikers are too close for real natural solitude and too remote for help to get to you. 5 – it is too remote for any aid to reach you except by either being carried out or a chopper with a jungle penetrater to extract you. The only place for help to come get you is at the turn around point. Here a skilled MEDEVAC pilot might set his/her chopper down because this is the only place along the trail with enough clearing. Other than a chopper to extract you count on walking out or wait for help from the trail head to come and find you. Last of all, trash, trash and more trash all along most of the trail.
