Today I took my dogs on this trail to cross-country ski. It was beautiful and well marked. The dogs loved it. Very dog friendly. We will be back for more this winter and hiking after the snow melts!

Beautiful area, but most of the trail was overgrown. Hard to run when I couldnt see where my foot was landing. Some muddy spots that were hard to avoid so I ended up soaking one foot and slinging mud all over the place.

Today was my first time on the Hron Shanty Loop. The tail map shows it to be 3.2 miles, but with the way the red/blue blazes are laid out, it works out to be just over 2.5 in length. over all it was a great way to spend a Saturday morning with my son.

Hiked the Kelly Loop trail. A little muddy and the blazes were hard to follow at times, but the hike was good overall.

Not a bad trail for a beginner or moderate level rider. I recorded the "Shanty Loop" trail but I also rode a couple of others while I was there. There is a few downhill sections to get the speed up. be sure to have momentum on your side when attacking the uphill sections because the Rocky terrain makes it difficult to get going again. the Rocks do offer good technical practice to beginners.
The blazes on the trails are sometimes hard to follow that's why I gave a 3 star rating. all in all it was a fun ride. I'll be back for sure.
