The trail is rocky for the first .3 miles then relatively flat and on soft tread up to this bridge crossing Newlin Creek, about .6 miles from the trailhead.

After the bridge, there are many additional creek crossings, most of which are pretty rudimentary, like this one. Others can be crossed by hopping rocks, or just walking through them. In mid-July, most of the crossings were dry or had very little water. Conditions are likely different in spring, during the winter run-off.

At about 2.4 miles from the trailhead, in a clearing on the left side of the trail is this teepee like structure.

About a hundred feet past the teepee, on the right side of the trail, are the remnants of the Herrick Sawmill site.

A sign provides some historical information regarding the sawmill operation.

The steam engine used to operate the sawmill was a massive cast-iron machine.

GPS track for this hike. We went about a half-mile past the sawmill site before turning around. The trail past the sawmill is steep and more rugged than the from the trailhead to the sawmill. The COTREX website and app show the trail ending about 100' past the sawmill, but the trail appears to go much further on.
