This really isn't a hiking trail. It's located across from the Inn of the Mountain Gods (a stunning Inn & casino in the middle of the woods) & seems designed for elderly, children or really unfit people. It's a paved walk along the edge of the woods. There are a series of exercise areas along the way where you're instructed to do simple pull ups, push ups, etc..I will say that if I lived nearby or was a guest @ the inn, I would love using this "trail" to jog & use the fitness stations. You can easily hike off the trail into the woods too.
