I had a blast with my girlfriends. Granted it was a hot day but we persevered and finished it! I think I made two non-hikers into hikers. Maybe. Lol Not sure. Definitely something to do again in the early fall. I give it 3 stars just for the heat and lack of as much scenery. It's more of an intense biker trail!
This is probably an excellent biking workout - I'd say it's moderate for hiking, but hard for biking. I hiked the trail. There's not a lot of flat areas - most of the time you're either going uphill or downhill. Don't let my rating discourage you, there just isn't a lot to see making it "good", but not "great" or "exceptional".
Biked Meadowlark today and it was amazing; I am able to crush Stillwell; today Meadowlark crushed me. The new double black diamond was the hardest challenge I have had in a long time; found myself walking quite a bit. The main loop is loaded with log obstacles, whoop dee doos, tight trees and quick turns; definitely had me thinking more than usual. Not sure if it was the heat or what but the workout I got was awesome!!
I'd say Meadowlark and Glacier Ridge are the best LI has to offer.
Oh, the trail is marked very well so no worries on getting lost....
