Great workout...several steep hills and sticks would help. Unfortunately, the trail markings are non existent and there have been too many trees cut and piled up for burning. Using this app from the tennis courts, it was a total of 5 miles...not 2.6

It's a decent trail but no vistas or distinguishing features to see. I suggest downloading the map as there are lots of different trails. My dog loved it. Do yourself a favor and park your car at the tennis courts as previously suggested. Took about an hour at a 17:30 min mile pace.

NO PARKING HERE. Heavily laden with “private parking only” signs. Can’t believe how selfish people can be. Looks gorgeous but I can’t park here so I won’t be able to enjoy it.

Beautiful fall colors. Lots of intersecting trails in this area. Trails are in good condition. Met a dozen others hiking in this area. The weather was perfect today.

Beautiful hike!!! My new favorite. Not crowded at all. Still lots of trees! White Spar Short Loop has been logged TOO much. But this trail is still gorgeous! Park at the tennis courts about 1/4 mile away. Then walk up Cougar Drive. BEAUTIFUL!!!

I really enjoyed this Trail it had a lot of trees for shade great for the summer heat. not much shade for the 1st 1/4 mile but good after that. directions take you to the trailhead, but signs say you can't park there. you have to park 1/4 mile away so adds 1/2 mile to the hike.
