Quiet and affordable

This place was alright, they let us stay in an emergency site when they were full until we could get a site the next night. The site wouldn’t be ready until after 11 the next day and they made us move all of our stuff out of the emergency site so it could sit empty, and wait until 11. We wanted to go get breakfast and come back at 11 but we would have had to pack everything up and unpack again two hours later. That was the only inconvenience. Hey had some cats that were really cool. Not too loud, some sites are pretty close together.

Clean and cheap

Clean restrooms and showers, cozy little cabins of all different sizes. Would go there again.

Great for backpacking

Hiked five days, four nights. Connects to NCT. Bring toilet paper. Water is stream is probably safe but bring a filter or enough water to last. No campgrounds, but there are areas with clearings for camping. The nearest other campers were not within earshot nor could we see them. Lots of wildlife.

Great for Backpacking!

We walked this trail for 5 days and 4 nights. Cell service was spotty, which was the goal. Lots of wildlife and great views. You need to carry everything out that you carry in. Bring a garden trowel and toilet paper. There are streams with decent drinking water but I would recommend a filter anyways. Connects to the north country trail. We parked at seton valley campground and paid $9 for Peking.

Great for a mini backpacking trip!

This is a great trail for beginning backpackers or anyone looking for a quick escape to the woods. We hiked the 7.5 mile loop and stayed one night. The best part is that there are no campgrounds so no loud groups of people/signs of humans everywhere. Just nature! Watch out for the bikers though. They go very fast and some of them are quite salty about having to share the trail with hikers.
