This was a great trail with my 7 year old. There are parts that are rocky but we both enjoyed it. We walked to the Great Wall and back. About 3/4 of the way is a tiny stream. Was perfect for her to explore a bit of nature!

Great trail overall. However especially on the northern side and getting to natural bridge, trails become difficult to follow. Combine this with significant challenge and it makes for a grueling day. The southern trails are perfectly fine and wind along a babbling brook which is gorgeous.

Very confusing trail. It's a nice, maintained trail - but not well marked, especially at the intersections.

CONFUSING. Not well marked, so it was easy to get lost and get frustrated. Didn’t finish the trail, I just gave up halfway in and went back on the Poweline Trail instead.
