“A trail through a recent burn with filtered views and a middle section requiring some route finding.”— Jake Bramante
This section of trail, until it reaches the West Lakes Trail, is poorly maintained. Various sections have been washed out and some route finding is required. Due to the fire and infrequent maintenance, downfall is very common. Pocket ponds and standing water provide ample breeding ground for mosquitos in spring and early summer.
New trees are gradually obscuring views that the fire brought.
