This route is not for the faint of heart. It is a secluded trail that requires caution. The trail is not well-maintained, and sources of water are scarce, with only a few marked spots located a considerable distance away from the trail. Unfortunately, I was unable to fill up on water as most of the sources were dry. I carried 2 liters of water and drank every last drop. To keep my energy levels up, I relied on 2 PayDay bars, a pop tart, and 2 Ensure drinks. I recommend attempting this trail in the Fall or early Spring, as it is likely to be overgrown with briars during the summer months.
