A beautiful trail but very poorly marked.

You can hike or bike this trail. Me and my boyfriend chose to hike it. The scenery is amazing. There are lots of steep hills and rocks. Personally, I don't know how someone could mountain bike on this trail, with all the rocks in the way. Then again, I am not a mountain biker. We did see plenty of bikers on the trail though. It is kinda hard to move out of the way of the bikers since the trail is so narrow. The bikers do go in the opposite direction though, so you can easily see them coming. There are three different loop paths to pick from, brown loop (2 miles), orange loop (4 miles) or green loop (6 miles). This gives you a lot of different choices, so you can really pick something based on your skill level. Overall, I would definitely recommend this trail. :)
