the trail is beautiful, there's actually other trails that connect to this trail and creates a longer loop. I hiked here with my dog on 07/14/18 and I ended up finding 3 ticks crawling on me but luckily none of them actually attached to me. My dog on the other hand, had 2 ticks attached to her, so I would be very careful. The trail also has moderate traffic and not lightly trafficked like the description says. Other than that, the trail was beautiful and scenic! If you're in the Santa Rosa area, I definitely recommend it!
