    I'm starting Physical Therapy for my knee so this is a great hike which doesn't stress the knee. Walking along an old logging rail track the gentle uphill from the trailhead to Walnut Bottoms provide great views of the creek. The Midnight Hole is 1.5 miles from the trailhead and, in warm weather, is a great (very cold) refresher. I rated the walk, 11 miles round trip, as a four. And that's only because I prefer being higher up and getting the great views.
