A short but scenic nature trail that begins and ends at the Troublesome Creek Campground. Hikers and campers will enjoy the walk along and over the turquoise creek, which indeed could be troublesome without the bridges spanning the shores.
The trail begins at the ADA parking spots near the picnic area. The loop can be done either direction but is clockwise as described. Pass the right turn to the footbridge and continue left to an interpretive sign with information on the local habitat. The dirt trail gently weaves through tall trees and follows Troublesome Creek upstream. Upon reaching a sturdy footbridge, turn right and cross over Troublesome Creek. After the bridge, take a left towards Upper Loop at the sign for Upper or Lower Loop (the Lower Loop will follow the creek and both trails come back together after a short time). The Upper Loop is a brief climb into a shady forest, but it quickly rejoins the main trail back at the creek. Turn left here and follow the creek south, back to the bridge you passed at the beginning. Cross the bridge to return to the picnic area and parking lot.
