Simple, non-technical ride. Moderately hilly, but not punishing. At the ends of the trail, foot, dog, and other biker traffic gets heavier. I like this trail for training runs and for tune-up rides. Sadly, parking at the the east end is neighborhood and usually packed. Parking at the west end is usually better although there is less space. I do recommend this trail for easy hikes, runs, and rides, just don't expect anything spectacular. It's good for dates, families, and pets.
Good long hike.
this is not a mountain bike trail. it was a good down hill road but an unsure why it labled for mountain biking should be changed.
We did the Linnton loop which was around 7.5 miles. We saw very few people for a Sunday even though it was drizzling. The fall colors were great & lots of slugs & mushrooms everywhere. Most of the uphill work gets done at the beginning & then it meets up with wildwood. The rest of Leif Erickson was on a large gravel fire road. Coming back down to Hwy 30 was super steep. Over all a nice hike & a great way to see that section of Forest Park.
This is a great trail for groups of runners and walkers who go at different paces but want to start and end together. The trail is popular but wide enough to easily share.

Although this is rated as year round, in usually becomes muddy, especially on the Germantown Road side, in the fall through spring. Best time to mountain bike this is in the dryer Summer months.
