Trail 200 (Borden Creek Trail)

Love this trail! Beautiful scenery (follows Borden creek) nice camping sites, and the "cave" is an adventure my boys love exploring. So, make sure you bring flashlights/headlamps. Also, found some fossils while exploring the bluffs. Can be a bit crowded especially on weekends.

Did the "yellow" trail which is 4 miles. Wore a ruck sack and did it mid day without needing more than a gallon of water. very beautiful and easy to hike!

Nice hike! The waterfalls are a joy to view and even better to get into and have a quick swim if the weather is right. The trail is moderate to easy depending on your abilities. Some rocks to traverse and some of the ledges are steep. It wasn't too crowded on the Sunday afternoon that we went. There are places where the tree canopy is very light and the direct sun will make you want to jump in the water too cool off for sure. Had the dog with as well and he enjoyed. But I wouldn't bring smaller dogs unless you want to carry them over some of the rocky areas.

Mountain Mist is a nice trail with lots of bike riders. I then went down McKay. The hike back up was very strenuous with some hands and feet. Good hike to get ready to go on the AT. It was a little over 7 miles.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.
