This is a nice, easy hike within Warner Parks. The trail is well-maintained and easy to follow. Unfortunately, it's the least exciting trail within Warner out of the big 3. It's extremely busy, running into other hikers very often. If you're going for a quick easy hike to change the pace up a bit, it is a great option.
Alright so this trail is beautiful. My boyfriend and I walked up the 4 mile loop to watch the sunset. Well we miss calculated on how long it would take to finish 3 minutes. We had to ask people where the next part of the trail was and how far was left. We made the mistake of finishing the 3 instead of turning around. Had to wonder in the dark trying to find our parking lot. Due to the poor trail marking we ended up on a totally different trail leading up to a main road. We were a 17 minute drive away from the parking lot. I suggest you head back once the sun sets. But people were nice and some said you should head back but we have never been and didn't know how the trails work. Kind of nervous to go back but other than that it was beautiful.
Awesome trail. Well maintained and challenging to run. If you're looking to get a good workout charging up hills and bombing down technical declines, this is your trail! Traffic can get heavy on the weekends but not enough to ever be a problem.
Full loop, not including connector trails, is about 4.2 miles and somewhere between 800-900ft of elevation gain.
