Miles Hiked: 4.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour


17 miles of trails, yet if you stay in the front half never more than 5 minutes from your car.  Many creeks & water crossing, lots of trees, back part is very isolated.  I've been there a couple dozen times and never been on the same hike twice.  No good map to speak of but you can find one online, but it is great just to wander.  You could spend hours here and never get bored.
