There was almost no trash on the last half of the trail, the majority of the trash was broken glass and cigarette butts found near what looks like the remains of a bonfire near the beginning of the trail. As well as near the peaceful looking rock that sits in the middle of the creek just beyond the remains of the bonfire. This is a trail we would hike again to show mountain flowers to someone who had never seen them before. Other than that, there are more scenic trails to venture.
1.3 Miles from Trailhead to Overlook Watershed Area, Dogs not Permitted
The Overlook at Mill B North Fork wound up being more challenging than we anticipated. Nearly the whole trail is decently steep running switchbacks all the way up to the overlook. At least 3/4 of the trail leaves you completely exposed to the afternoon sun, so it was quite hot. Despite all that however, it was very nice seeing all the honeybees and butterflies swarming the many flower patches scattering along the trail. While this trail isn't as popular as many of the others surrounding it, it was a little busy. We encountered multiple groups of people on the trail on the way up and on the way back down.
0.5 miles - No Campfires No Trail Left Behind hiked Mule Hollow Mine Trail. The trail could be difficult to follow for a novice; but, we wouldn't recommend this hike for a novice because it is moderately steep for most of the way. There are brief, but frequent and pleasant, stream crossings. As well as a few hurdles like boulders and fallen trees in the path. This was a very enjoyable hike. We found 1.5 lbs worth of broken glass bottles, crushed cans, wrappers, bottle caps, and broken electronics.
