Nice trail, good views, correctly rated as moderate.
The loose rocks along the entire trail create a hazard that requires attention to your next step.

Very nice hike!! Beautiful views and scenery, little hills and rocks which keep it interesting, and everyone was so nice and friendly! I really liked that it was a loop too. Very rocky and can be slippery, but not much climbing

Not a great MTB trail (more suited to hiking), and rocky, but fun for experienced riders. Avoid weekends, as this one gets BUSY when it's nice out.

Nice hike, the facilities and staff are very good. Views are solid...some spots are a little tricky but overall pretty fair.

What a great hike! It was more beautiful than I expected. Not an easy hike but certainly not hard. I will enjoy this hike again! Traffic was moderate, but not heavy. Great parking and facilities. Volunteer was helpful too before we ventured out.

Really enjoyed this one. Beautiful August morning a little overcast. Great moderate hike, rocky terrain, not bad for a beginner trail runner.
