I had a blast with my girlfriends. Granted it was a hot day but we persevered and finished it! I think I made two non-hikers into hikers. Maybe. Lol Not sure. Definitely something to do again in the early fall. I give it 3 stars just for the heat and lack of as much scenery. It's more of an intense biker trail!
This is probably an excellent biking workout - I'd say it's moderate for hiking, but hard for biking. I hiked the trail. There's not a lot of flat areas - most of the time you're either going uphill or downhill. Don't let my rating discourage you, there just isn't a lot to see making it "good", but not "great" or "exceptional".
Biked Meadowlark today and it was amazing; I am able to crush Stillwell; today Meadowlark crushed me. The new double black diamond was the hardest challenge I have had in a long time; found myself walking quite a bit. The main loop is loaded with log obstacles, whoop dee doos, tight trees and quick turns; definitely had me thinking more than usual. Not sure if it was the heat or what but the workout I got was awesome!!
I'd say Meadowlark and Glacier Ridge are the best LI has to offer.
Oh, the trail is marked very well so no worries on getting lost....
The only thing that would have made this trail perfect if it were a little faster. However it was challenging not impossible and fun. Definitly NOT A beginner trail. Trail was 5 mile loop. Lots of hills, tight turns, downhills and log rolls. Singletracks were pretty essy to follow. Definitly recommend this trail to anyone who wants to have a quick workout while perfecting there craft.
