We've taken telephone to both Snowshoe Hare and Hostel and found all to be good well marked moderate trails with beautiful scenery.
We have found going later in the day (on weekends) is better for our horses as there are fewer cyclists. (My horse is terrified of them as the first encounter with a cyclist here also included his labradoodle bounding out of the trees barking at us and bouncing wildly) - but all of the cyclists including that one have been extremely kindly in slowing down or stopping as we ask to pass safely. FYI Dogs are allowed off leash deeper into the trail.
There is a fair amount of traffic during the day (weekends) (but by no means, crowded) but everyone is very friendly and conscientious.
