A little Rocky, but all and all a fun experience.
I have biked this trail a few times. I hiked it with my dog last week and up hear the top, the rain turned to snow and we got snowed on for about 2 miles.
Actually took "Buck Mountain Loop" - this was my first longer venture out with my dog (since the main falls trails don't allow dogs) and it was nice. Lots of horses on this trail during the weekend.
