The official start of the trail is in Broadwater Bay park but, it can be accessed in many places.
There are even a few hotels along the river and the trail goes by them so, it can be a great place to unwind at the end of the day.
A lot of the trail is paved but, on the East end past Rainbow Falls it turns to dirt and is a great place to mountain bike. Take water and snacks as there are no facilities once you go past Giant Springs Park.
On the West side there is a nice view of Great Falls from West Bank part.
This is a wonderful trail to walk or bike
Trail to the top is actually only 7 miles out and back. There are some other paths once you reach the mountain lake, but that is where the main trail ends.
Hiked it in the middle of October with no problems. A dusting of snow here and there, but nothing to slow you down. View at the top is totally worth it. Saw plenty of bear droppings so make sure to hike with bear spray at least.
Once you locate the start of the actual Trail it is a nice gradual climb with plenty of switchback. Hikes it with a friend on 10-9-2016. It is worth the Terrain and I will return. I did leave a Token of Gratitude for all the beauty this has to offer. Would recommend to not being children due to the stop off at the Trails end. Allow plenty of time to enjoy the Beauty.
