Great trail for hiking and mountain biking. If you are hiking, definitely be aware of mountain bikers coming around corners. This is a relatively easy hike in terms of grade, and the views from the top are worth it. We went dlightly off course, and followed a sign to "Lakeview Trail", which went up a much steeper grade for maybe 3/4 of a mile. Totally worth it!

This was a great trail but it definitely isn't an easy trail. The beginning is too steep for a teen beginner to ascend or descend. The first half is uphill. You can hear the creek for a mile or two but not really see it.
