This is high traffic. I brought the kids here for a nice hike only to find a bunch of teenagers speeding in their ATV's. The trail is more of a road then a trail. I will never come back.

This is an easy trail. Have to pay attention to the signs since there are many trails that keep cris crossing it. Might be a warm hike in summer but early fall it was warm but okay. Also is a trail that atv use but didn't really encounter any.

Took kids and dogs and the trail was the perfect length to keep it enjoyable.

An okay trail for just getting a hike in. More bike/ATV friendly than "hike exclusive". Very well marked. The creek and greenery on the west side of the loop is definitely the high point. Hiked midweek and had the trail all to ourselves.

Lots of pea gravel made it slippery. Still nice and not hard.
