A nice hike and the bugs weren't bad at all. Wish I would have brought my trail runners because the trail network is perfect for running. Good hike!

Difficulty is easy:
It's a good and level trail. It's well marked as are the other trails in the park. The northern and western parts are fairly spacious (as trails go). They tend to be sandy vs dirt/muddy and any lingering water is easily bypassed by shadowing it a few feet into the wood line. Most of it is mountain bike 'legal'. There are also at least three open shelters along the path to meditate and rest (I think they have a picnic table, if memory serves).
The southern leg from the trailhead is more prone to being the path of least resistance for the flow of water and part of it is not meant for mountain biking.

There are a few other trails that lead off from this one or are easily accessed via it. (Fire Tower Trail, Bog Trail, Mountain Mist, Biker's Top Trail, ...)
