11/8/20- This trail is beautiful, and it has some of the most unique wildlife! It was perfect weather and there was hardly anyone on the trail. This is a very comfortable loop and perfect for any beginner hiker, trail runner, or bike rider. Overall, I enjoyed this trail and I highly recommend!

i am not so sure about the easy rating. Perhaps that was for hikers or more experienced mtn bikers. we are pretty new to Mtn Biking and found some of the washes quite challenging. still a fun trail. We will do again.

The trail is not very technically difficult. There is no shade so if it's hot be prepared. it is a quiet hike there are not many other hikers

I think the map to this trail is a bit wrong. I tried to find the trail that connects around this as a loop but couldn’t find it so I kept going. As I kept going I saw it was taking me off the trail.. so I had to turn back around the same way I started. I ended up doing nearly the same amount of miles and elevation gain so I still got a good hike out of it but it’s not what I expected. My least favorite trail but a hike is a hike and an exercise is an exercise!
