We've hiked this 2 times! Great trail and it well maintained. Not overly crowded. Lots of foot traffic but still great! Passing the witches house is a great visual and the sounds of the water is a nice change since it's so close to pdx! A great workout of switchbacks going up towards pittock mansion!
Simple, non-technical ride. Moderately hilly, but not punishing. At the ends of the trail, foot, dog, and other biker traffic gets heavier. I like this trail for training runs and for tune-up rides. Sadly, parking at the the east end is neighborhood and usually packed. Parking at the west end is usually better although there is less space. I do recommend this trail for easy hikes, runs, and rides, just don't expect anything spectacular. It's good for dates, families, and pets.
