There was a recent storm that felled some trees, but they've mostly been cleaned up. You may have to climb over a log or two.

This trail runs up and around the head of a seepage stream, follows its bank at many points, curves around an ephemeral pond, passes the west end of Big Tree Cutoff at GH, and then encounters a series of enchanting 'meander' loops of the main stream. There are large patches of Giant Cane, Arundinaria gigantea, along this trail. Its south end is at the junction with the east end of the Oak Hammock Loop at H.
Flora & Fauna
One of the best places in town to find mushrooms! Mosquitos can get moderately tedious, so pack insect repellant. Keep an eye out for poison oak and poison ivy if you leave the trail.
