great trail. 1.94 miles around then 2.10 miles back as I added in the Knights ferry section. shade the whole way. rained heavy night before so lots of mud. saw one person the whole time. very lightly used. easy to follow with the orange tree markers.

This trail was great from my 4 & 5 year old daughters! They had a lot of fun and made it through the whole trail with a minimum number of breaks which was great for their very first trail!
