We hiked this recently. There is a homeless encampment now at the I-15 tunnel, just at the junction with Wagon Train Road. The trail is in good condition and the efforts of the maintenance crews is apparent. At one spot they built a small bench at a very scenic outlook. On our way back we noticed new mountain bike tracks on the trail. Those tracks led to the outlook where the bench had been destroyed to make a jump for the bikes.

Despite the recent rains, this section was waterless.
