Stay away from this one until the maintainers decide to take care of it. The trail south of Red Bridge campground is almost impassable at points. At least 50% of the southern section is overgrown with briars and stinging nettles. Walked through a two mile section where we were wading through overgrowth that was higher than our heads. No one has been out to clear this trail in a long time. Another section had so many saplings growing on and over the trail you literally had to fight your way through. All of this an I didn\'t even mention the 10-20 blowdowns you have to climb over each mile. If you\'re looking for a trip through the jungle this one is for you otherwise stay away. Not sure how this is classified as a certified trail.

Directions to Hike
