This a multi loop trail primarily intended for Mountain Biking, which I also enjoy.

Just look for the trail to start in the parking lot behind you. There is no loop. You walk til you want to turn around. Difficulty​ level hard.

Nice hike for the family - we hiked for about 90 minutes and encountered 1 or 2 mountain bikes on the trail- both extremely friendly. Went out on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and the trail was quiet but got busier on the walk back. Pretty easy with a few hills, no views. Good for a really hot day because the sun barely shines thru the tree cover.

Inaccurate description. This trail is for mountain biking only, not walking/hiking.

Nice mountain trail but not very scenic.

Excellent ride with terrific views. Don't attempt riding without mountain bike. Recommend no younger than very experienced 8 year old.
