    I guess I was expecting a lot more large trees! I'm from Florida, and the average oak tree there put these 'large' trees to shame. Nice walk, peaceful, quiet, love nature etc. but don't expect to see a large number of huge sequoia level trees. Maybe 10-20 decent size (approx 5' - 8' diameter) trees.

    I enjoy this place, huge beautiful forest looks untouched by human hand. One trail was closed due to fire in 2016. We camped at horse cove campground.

    This is one of my favorite local places. The poplar trees are amazing.

    Gorgeous untouched forest. This is the actual forest that you see the ideal pictures of. It's a decent hike. Note: outhouses only and no chance of cell service.
