Nice trail, easy hiking and biking. We only did the partial trail from Brink to Watkins Mill. At Watkins Mill it becomes a sidewalk, rather than a trail. The trail is popular, so we looked for an off peak time over Labor Day.
Good mix of hills, rocks, roots and gliding trail. No one else on trail. Great time
