One of my most favorite biking trails that I've ridden. Perfect opportunity to learn your bike's gears with all of the tough and exciting with fast turns, difficult climbs and various sized roots.

Hiked with my dog and lots of roots as others have said. I recommend starting at the upper trail head so you save the view of the water for last, the forest wasn't much to see when it's cloudy out in February!

Hiking this with my 4 & 6 year old girls was a good time. They loved it. If we continue doing it I'm sure I'll be trail running just to keep up. ;)

Lots of roots but overall a nice ride. Pretty decently kept, nice views, and drains well.

This is one of my favorites near home. The trail is located in the park with several starting points and intersections. My dog and I love walking along the trail with plenty of chances for him to cool off in the bay. Plenty of opportunity to see deer and other wildlife. Lots of roots so it can be a bit bumpy for bicycles. If you go on the weekends, don't be surprised to see greyhounds running ahead of cyclist or labs playing fetch in the water.

Great trail! It has different length loops. I hiked the longest: 7 miles. Even after a lot of recent rain it is not muddy. It seems well kept up and has some great scenic views.

I could not find this trail. Where the app said the trailhead was I only found a nice new gated community of duplexes. I wandered around and got a couple miles in running around some clay fields where it's obvious big trucks go mudding. There were lots of small rocks and low brush. Not very friendly to foot traffic. If this trail still exists I hope someone submits another review with directions.

I enjoyed this trail, it's plagued with alot of roots. Be prepared for a bumpy ride!! It had some fast down hills and flowed well. The inclines are brief,rewarding more down hills.
I also encountered an enormous doe and other wild life.
