Minor Issues
Update
Some Mud - About one-third of the distance from the eastern starting end of the trail, there is a raft with some ropes that are used to pull the raft across the outlet of Nine Mile Lake (which looks like a smaller river on a map). With the depth of the water at the outlet right now, it is not possible to pull the raft all the way to the western side of the river outlet so it is not crossable (you could wade if you wanted) unless there is somewhere else to cross that I couldn't find. So, that leaves you with about 1.7 miles one-way of running until you get there from the eastern side. If you start on the western side, you have a much longer run with the out and back.
