Singletrack loop with little, if any, elevation gain. Mildy technical, but all levels of experience can have a great time. It can be rooty at times, but fun walking or mountain biking at speed.
little bit confusing but nice trail.
Great MTB track. A little bit tough as very rooty, but excellent for training. Get assured about direction of trail as sometimes it could be challenging.
It was an easy trail to hike but very poorly marked. It was difficult to stay on course without resorting to navigation.
Easy trail, nice hike with my dog JoJo, Only thing that I didn't care for (and I'm not putting anyone down) was the narrow trail and the mountain bikers. I was constantly moving to the side to allow them access. Would be a great trail for either just bikes or just hikers.
Fairly easy and you'll probably run into someone every now and then. Great little eno spots and other places to hang out. Very safe. Good exercise for you, the kids, and the pets!
Great trail. It's tough sometimes because there are bikers and hikers but overall a good time.
A handful of bad bike riders make the trail less desirable then it could be.
